If you didn't know it already, Tuesday 18 March is World Social Work Day. Promoted by the International Federation of Social Workers (IFSW), it's an opportunity to celebrate the great work and dedication of social workers around the world whilst also drawing attention to issues of social and economic deprivation.
In England, the College of Social Work will be launching a number of initiatives throughout this week, and they’d like you to get involved. Whether you're a student, manager, front line worker, academic, service user or carer – they want to know what social work means to you. Photos, artwork, poetry, prose or quotes - all creative expressions are welcome.
Meanwhile, the IFSW have made a promotional poster available to download in more than 25 languages:

We have an older lady lives in our very close community who has had two appointments for cataract procedure ( both cancelled ) .
Though she is of learning disability she manages very well independently , she becomes very unsettled when things don't go according to planned arrangements .
I can acknowledge that there are times , due to staffing and other problems arise , that cancellations occur , but for people of this situation it can be quite a worry .
Appointments for procedures should , where ever possible , should be adhered to and , where ever possible , should be honoured ..
