Attachments:  K Waddington_et_al_Full_Paper            Kathryn Waddington

Date:  Wednesday 5th June 2013

Time:  5.30 – 7pm, followed by light refreshments

Venue:  B63 Law and Social Sciences Building, University Park, The University of Nottingham

The speaker on this occasion is Dr Kathryn Waddington, Senior Lecturer, Department of Applied Psychosocial Sciences at City University London.

We could hardly let this academic year come to an end without a speaker who can comment upon organisational culture, the quality of healthcare and some of the findings from the Francis Report. Kathryn is author of the recently published  Gossip and Organisations, and has studied informal communications of this sort, and some of the messages from Staffordshire.  The seminar is sure to be of interest to healthcare practitioners, managers and users of all persuasions.  A recent conference paper is attached.

As always the seminar is aimed at as wide a range of practitioners and academics as possible, though this one is of particular importance to the mental health community. I look forward to seeing you there.

If you wish to attend please inform, although you will be more than welcome if you do not have time to do so.
