This Week: Edition 108


It’s been a busy week here at Haelo HQ! Becky White, Communications Assistant, tells us what’s got the team chatting in a jam packed This Week…

Diary from Down Under

Haelo’s very own Chief Executive, Professor Maxine Power, has travelled to Australia for two weeks, equipped with a packed schedule to deliver innovation and improvement knowledge.

Maxine has been exchanging valuable insight and expertise, consulting with professionals, capturing best practice and has been sharing learning from right here in Salford, across 10,556 miles, to Sydney. You can follow Maxine via twitter, or visit the website for diary from down under. Alternatively read any of the individual blogs below:

Dementia United Greater Manchester Locality Meeting

Wednesday marked #WorldAlzheimersDay and also the Greater Manchester wide Dementia United locality meeting hosted at Salford Royal.

It was fantastic to see multi disciplinary expert teams from across the localities contributing their insights to the next stage of Dementia United. The meeting included fascinating discussions from diagnosis to implementation, consistent terminology to crisis response. Full review coming soon!


Why Should I Make a Film?

Have you ever made a film? If not, why not? In this blog, Haelo’s film team Ste Miller and Tom Harvey make the case for film as a unique way to tell your story.

‘Chances are there is a video camera in your pocket right now with image quality that only a few years ago would have cost thousands of pounds. We now have the ability to shoot, edit and share a film online all on the same device. When you have a simple message you want to share with a wide audience, nothing beats film.’ Read more here.
