of Bristol's Criminal Justice Liaison Services (CJLS) after a day's
Fiona Banes, Acting Manager of the Court Assessment Referral
Service was delighted to greet Ian Hulatt, RCN Health Advisor and
Ann Norman, Criminal Justice and Learning Disability Advisor and
Thomas Metcalf, RCN trainee editorial assistant last week.
Having enjoyed a presentation from team leader, Rich Evans, at
the CJLS hub at Corum Park, Warmley, the RCN team then spent
time with Pauline Dean, the duty worker for the day. Fiona
then escorted Ian and Ann on visits to HMP Bristol, Trinity Road
Police Station, and Bristol Magistrates Court to meet some of the
practitioners working from those locations.
Ann Norman said, "We were totally impressed by the commitment
and dedication of you all in doing the very best for the people you
care for. It is quite clear to see how you have generated such
positive attention to your services."
Fiona Banes added, "It was a pleasure to showcase the Service to
the RCN. It is always great when people show an interest in our
services especially when they are services of which AWP can be
rightly proud. Thanks to the support of our Commissioners, Police
and Court Colleagues, the Trust and to the dedicated, flexible and
enthusiastic team that make up the CARS."
