NHS Crawley Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) staff are visiting local primary schools to help educate children on where best to seek medical advice if they feel unwell.
On Wednesday (29th November) the CCG visited two schools in the local area; Waterfield School in Crawley and The Mill Primary School also in Crawley.
Janette McClintock, Head Teacher at The Mill Primary School, said: “As well as educating children on where best to go if they or a member of their family gets ill I also think it is really important children know about the wider functions of the NHS, such as the importance of the pharmacy”.
The interactive assemblies involve children choosing where best to send Monkey (a puppet used as a tool to talk to children about healthcare services) after being presented with a range of scenarios involving Monkey injuring himself. The children then work out the most appropriate place for him to receive medical attention. The aim of the assemblies is to make people think twice about going to A&E for injuries that could have been seen elsewhere and ensure people get the right care, in the right place, at the right time when it’s #notanemergency.
Veryan Nicholls, Children’s and Maternity Programme Manager at NHS Crawley and NHS Horsham and Mid Sussex CCGs, said: “We were pleased to have the opportunity of sharing the #notanemergency message with the children and to talk with them about the help their local pharmacy can provide if they are unwell. We were really impressed with how much they knew about the Crawley Urgent Treatment Centre and the different services the NHS provides”.
Children were also given a card to attach to their fridges at home so parents could also be aware of the best place for their child if unwell.
Heather Woolsey, a local mother whose child attends St Margaret’s school, the first school the CCG visited, said: “My five year old son came home from school and was telling me that when you had a little burn you should go to the pharmacist. He’d heard that in an assembly given by the Children’s and Maternity Programme Manager at the CCG. It was great that he’d heard that information and brought it home with him – he also had a card that outlines where you should go for different illnesses, which he likes to look at because it has an ambulance on it. It’s such a simple but great idea to educate children on where to go if they need emergency – or non-emergency – care” explained.
The CCG #notanemergency assembly will now roll out across other schools in the community, following on from the success of the first few.

Our members come from such a variety of cultures and backgrounds,but we all have one thing in common – Autistic Spectrum Disorder. Our meetings are a time to get together with fellow parents and carers,to pick each other’s brains,but to also switch off from our 24/7 demands and relax. The group is currently undergoing a relaunch and it is our aim to have guest speakers in the coming months to discuss issues pertinent to us i.e behavioural problems,educational psychologists,benefits advice etc. We have a new email address which they can contact me on ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ also a facebook page ‘Autism Support Crawley.’
With no game this Saturday and our next home match on the 10th January when we play MK Dons – it’s a good long break from football
However, I now need to confirm details with the hotel – those who have not paid their deposits I need this as soon as possible to confirm the rooms.
FLEETWOOD AWAY – 2 NIGHTS IN BLACKPOOL – Match now on as both team are out of this seasons F A Cup – please book for this overnighter if you haven’t already done..
We are in the process of confirming the weekender to Fleetwood in January – the two night stop will be at the Leverdale Hotel in Blackpool – We travel up on Friday 23rd January and travel back on Sunday, leaving the hotel at about 9.30am after breakfast. Cost of the weekend will be £85.00 per person – We will depart from the New Moon on the Friday at 9.30am, and will have a stop for a buffet lunch at the White Lion at Barthomley (to be confirmed) – The £85.00 includes 2 nights B & B in Blackpool. Coach travel and buffet lunch on the way up. Like previously the coach will park up on arrival at the hotel and then we will use the trams to Fleetwood on the Saturday to the game.
Saturday 16th January 2015 – Rochdale – our first ever trip to Spotlands for a match. So hopefully to some it will be a new ground to visit, so with a bit of luck more supporters making the trip. I will be posting the information about this trip next week, hopefully with some good news for supporters travelling with us. Early info I can give is that we will be departing the New Moon at 7.00am with a stop at the White Lion, Barthomley on the way up.
Welcome to the Crawley Town Supporters Travel Group – to be known as GH Coaches
As you can see we now have an official name, we have associate membership of the FSF with our own coach insurance, a bank account and our own travel web site, Facebook and Twitter pages. It’s been a very emotional few weeks since we decided to run coaches to the away games – We would thank everyone who has helped getting everything set up for our first trip to Cheltenham on Saturday 27th August 2011. We are disappointed at the comments being made by others and contrary to what they are indicating, Kevin and I are not taking or will not take any money out, everyone who travels on our coach will pay the appropriate fare – we can confirm that any profits made will be solely used to help subsidise our future coaches and at the end of the season any surplus will be carried over. If, in the future our venture folds, then any profit made we will donated to the Chestnut Tree Charity. Bill Doidge & Tara Greenway will be overseeing the accounts and acting as signatories on the cheques, which we would thank them for their involvement. We would also than those supporters who have made donations to the setting up of the Travel Group.
CRAWLEY LUXURY COACHES – Our Coach provider
We would like to thank Dave, Gavin and Darren Brown for their help and assistance in setting this venture up, without that we wouldn’t be in the situation today where we can offer our supporters an alternative travel to away games.
Over the past 20 years our partnership as the Crawley Town Supporters Club has been able to offer supporters a cheap way of getting to games, and we intend to keep this going this season and beyond under our new identity. We know that we are working with a terrific coach company who have great respect in the industry – and whose contingency plans when we went to Manchester for the FA Cup match were very impressive – the work that went on behind the scenes for the big day were immense. David, Kevin and I learnt a lot from the experience, something we all will hopefully use again.
THE HALF MOON
We have now returned to the Half Moon as our base from January 2014 after a few months away, we will be selling tickets and the “Time of the last Crawley goal” will return – we will be sitting at the Half Moon on Saturday home match days – from 12.15pm until 2.15pm, and possible for a short time after the game. If you come into the pub we are situated immediately to your right, by the door. On the evening home games we will be at there from 6.00pm until 7.15pm. We would like to thank Nick, Binny and Chris for use of their facilities. If you can’t get to the Half Moon, then please ring Alain (07771-792346 or E mail Alain.email@example.com).
On the return journey, we will still do our drop off’s via Northgate and the Town Centre.
Now its up to you, the supporters now have a choice – you can either use us, the Alliance or the Jacko Express for your method of getting to away games.
This is the start of our second season as GH Coaches and we would like to thank Dave Brown and Crawley Luxury Coaches for their continuing support. Further details of coach travel to other matches will be published during the season as we go.
Again this season, we will not have a membership scheme where one supporter pays more than another to travel, any supporter can travel on ourcoaches for the same fare – some matches we will offer the under 16’s cheaper travel, and hopefully if everything goes as well as last season some fantastic fares for everyone. In the mean time and getting ready for next season please can you print & fill in the GH Form below so that we have contact and emergency details for our records.
