The Hermes Group welcomed a new member, Jack Sullivan, to it's latest presentation last Thursday evening.

 

Jay Davies gave us all an insight into his work on the exercise referral scheme for Back Care which was received well by members present.

He has received great encouragement from  members of the Hermes Group, which he acknowledges and the group intends to continue to help Jay develop this scheme further.

 

As a group we must help ensure that referrals are appropriate to the level of skills Jay has aquired and is still aquiring, keeping both Jay and his clients safe!
