A great Birthday present was received yesterday (25th November):
'We went before Oldham CCG's Dragons Den to give a presentation to a panel of 8 "dragons" to request funding for a paramedic and a mental health worker as sessional workers to join Street Angels teams working on Friday and Saturday nights and they have agreed to invest £40,000.
This will guarantee 2 NHS members of staff on duty both evenings - we currently only work on Saturday night. So this will extend our services. I asked if we could have them in time for Christmas and they've agreed to work on this. Our bid was supported by the hospital A&E consultant, clinicians on CCG and our Director of Public Health.
This is great news and will really benefit the work of Oldham Street Angels by improving the quality of care we can offer.'
