Paul Clayton – a bit of history

PRG for the CCG…yes, more acronyms when talking to the NHS

Besides delivering training, I’ve been networking and talking with Southwark, Greenwich and Lewisham sensory teams since becoming a freelance tutor; joining the Lewisham NHS Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) as an active and member of their Patient Reference Group (PRG) from 2015-2018. This was quite an eye opener in so many ways, finding the inertia that seemed to be institutional in the behaviour of the executives wanting a ‘critical friend’ and then realising it involved changing how things were done in terms of engagement. Strange that.

In 2018 U Can Do IT ceased trading as a charity, which was very upsetting, but I was then asked by Mycenae House to start delivering Digital Inclusion sessions (Mycenae Digital) within the Reach Out project, which has been a great experience as my work is best produced in a team environment. 2020 is bringing new challenges, but I’m still making ‘Techy Times’.
