In October 2023, the charity’s Treasurer, Ian, and his 17-year-old daughter Jasmin attended the Royal College of General Practitioners Conference (RCGP) in Glasgow to represent Caring Matters Now. This was the first time that a Young Ambassador had attended a conference on our behalf, in preparation, we took the opportunity to brief the team so that Jasmin knew what to expect on the day! The conference was attended by +19,000 GPs, from both the UK and abroad, and throughout the 2-day conference our stand was visited by a large number of delegates who wanted to have more information about CMN and to understand more about the support we offer as a charity. The conference was local to our Scotland Regional Contact, Lorna, who was also able to attend the conference for a few hours to support to Ian and Jasmin on the stand. Jasmin and Ian reported that the conference was also a fantastic opportunity to speak to doctors from across the UK as well as from countries such as Saudi Arabia, Thailand and Brazil, to raise awareness about CMN and to signpost the support offered by Caring Matters Now.
