Why we should prioritise imagination in early years learning and medical education

Dr Malcolm Rigler, talks to the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) about Early Years Arts in Weston Super Mare, and 65 High Street Nailsea, the first High Street Learning Centre in the UK.

This month AHSW member Dr Malcolm Rigler, was interviewed by the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) about Early Years Arts in Weston Super Mare, as well ahis involvement in setting up the digital health hub – 65 High Street Nailsea, the first High Street Learning Centre in the UK that is open to everyone.

The aim of 65 High Street Nailsea is to show an alternative way of providing healthcare and medical advice. It provides a space that engages the community, inspires young people and shows that medicine is a career that is open to everyone.

We seek to support our local GP Practices to help patients learn about their conditions and to connect with others facing the same difficulties or health problems. We believe that this way of working will promote both the health and wellbeing of individuals and the whole community in Nailsea and BSLM shares our enthusiasm for shared consultation.

Malcom is a retired NHS GP, and during his time as a medical student in Bristol he developed a keen interest in Public Health and the way in which Town Councils can respond to the health needs of local residents. He strongly believes that every High Street would benefit from having a Learning Centre.
