Beginning Monday 16th May in Wallasey.
Ring 01516305450 or 07956059272 for details.
(I forgot to read the finer details of the Wall Poster but i think this is part of an N.H.S campaign to improve Mens Health).
Worth ringing though, if drumming is your thing? Leave details on ansafone if nobody answers. smile

yeh we've got that poster up in work i think and it is a NHS campaign for mens health.

not experienced it, but i've heard it's meant to be good (it's been on before so i've heard feedback from people)

Nice to see the NHS spending our taxes wisely. Forget cancer patients who are being refused drugs because there's "no money left", let's look after aspiring drummers...

Yeah!!

it's not run by the NHS

it's a 3rd party 'recovery' group whose doing it but advertising in NHS waiting rooms,

witht he greatest of respect, people like you annoy me, people who say "oh the nhs is spending taxes wisely on s**t like drumming lessons" when what you know is that "drumming lessons are advertised in nhs waiting rooms" and you jump to conclusions.

i've worked for the nhs for a few years and i can tell you that 99% of the things people say the "nhs is wasting money on" isn't the nhs, it's other groups/services/companies but just advertising them in NHS waiting rooms.

facts: get them right.

So who's funding it then? Would it happen to be the taxpayer?

People like you piss me off, just because something runs under a different name from UK Government or NHS, and so therefore believe the public should not have a right to voice their opinion on tax payers money being wasted/mis-spent.

And fyi, the NHS waste a hell of a lot of money on allsorts of stupid schemes (as well as paying way over the odds on just about everything they buy, be it products or services), however you would only come to realise that once you have seen accounts within an NHS department.

Its probably about getting people off their arm chairs away from the television and doing things mentally, socially and physically active, this saves the NHS money.

It was suggested in the Wirral NHS Strategy in 2009, particularly for those who suffer from anxiety problems.

There are mention of the sessions for the Men's Activities Hub, part of Recovery Wirral for those recovering from mental health issues HERE

Whether its money well spent or not - I've no idea.

Yep, then they go home and do the same, no real difference overall.

Don't get me wrong, I do see the idea behind the scheme, but again, it all boils down to this nanny state attitude, whereby the state should look after those who choose not to look after themselves (and I'm not talking about disabled people here, I'm talking about the idle Grrrs who expect to looked after by everyone else).

It angers me to see the NHS refuse people drugs and treatments for serious illnesses due to cost-cutting or lack of funds to begin with, and then on the other hand, wasting money left, right and centre on crap, and holding peoples hands just because they don't want to take responsibility for themselves.

Would probably be cheaper to get some deal with Nintendo and buy them all a Wii so they can use Wiisports lol.
