Date published: 14 May 2019

The Asian Medical and Professionals Support Organisation (AMPSO) organised a Heath Awareness session on Sunday 5 May at Castlemere Community Centre.

Ghulam Rasul Shahzad OBE said: “This was the last of the series of five events; drugs and alcohol awareness, mental health, stroke and diabetes, these were very successful events and a large number attended and contributed to their success.”

Dr Humayun, Chair of AMPSO, thanked everyone for attending the event and gave some background information about the AMPSO. Humera Haqqani, local radio presenter acted as the stage secretary.

Dr Ahmed spoke about drug and alcohol awareness and strokes, Dr. Sarwar Khan spoke about mental health and Dr Abdul Saeed spoke about diabetes.

There was also a question and answer session in which participants had the opportunity to ask questions and give suggestions to improve the services provided by the NHS.

Ghulam Rasul Shahzad OBE said: “I am pleased that AMPSO has organised this just before the start of the month of fasting as it will benefit those who will be fasting.

“We should be thankful to all the doctors for their contribution to raise awareness of important issues which are currently affecting the community and organising all the subjects for raising awareness of the community.

“AMPSO will soon be writing a book based on the previous workshops and the current feedback session. It will be sent to authorities to take action."

Dr Humayun thanked everyone for their attendance and contribution and food was served.
