It’s hard to believe that I have already been in post for three months as the Pause National Practice Lead. Thank you to everyone for your warm welcome. I have been very impressed by the wide range of skills, knowledge and practice wisdom demonstrated by practitioners and practice leads across the sites. I am looking forward to spending more regular time with sites as part of my monthly visits. This will enable an on-going focus to identify and capture best practice, monitor data and outcomes and ensure a collaborative approach to identifying solutions to practice dilemmas. I hope you are all able to attend the fourth Learning Event on March 17th, facilitated by Georgina Perry and myself, which will highlight specific practice issues around sex work.
