Under leadership of Emily Henderson (leader 2015-2018) the Network established successful bi-annual network meetings and learning events which have led to development of:

  • a 24 hour admission care plan
  • a bone health booklet
  • a physiotherapy network

Ed Richfield took on the leadership role in May 2019.
