VIP Visit for I.M.P.S.
Our I.M.P.S. team was recently
treated to a VIP visit the Chief Executive of Public Health
Duncan Selbie made a special effort to drop in on the department
whilst visiting the organisation. I.M.P.S (Injury Minimization
Programme for Schools) empowers young people to take personal
responsibility for managing their own risk and equips them with
skills to cope in an emergency.
Mr Selbie has been interested in the progress of
I.M.P.S. and its associated projects (ELFS
(Early Learning for Safety) & ORCS
(Opportunities for Resuscitation & Citizen Safety) since
becoming aware of the work which is led by Programme
Manager Sally Morton.
Pupils and staff from St Chrysostom's C of E Primary
School were on hand to explain how valuable they found the
Sally said: "We receive lots of positive feedback from
children, young people, parents/carers and teachers about the
importance and benefits of what we teach. It was great for
our team, CMFT & Public Health Manchester to know
that the work that we do is recognised and valued at
national level too."
Mr Selbie added: "It was great to have the opportunity to
meet the Year 6 children and teachers. No one could better
explain the value of I.M.P.S. Thank you to everyone
