The Mayor of Hillingdon, Cllr Teji Barnes, has paid a visit to CNWL’s Addictions Service, ARCH.

OI000001.JPGDuring a series of Zoom presentations, Cllr Barnes heard from Addiction Services’ Clinical Director Dr Jeffrey Fehler, who also works as a Consultant Psychiatrist at ARCH, who spoke of how the service had to adapt to online rather than face-to-face contact at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic in order to continue to provide a service – much of which continues.

Other presentations came from:

  • nurses who showed off a fibroscan


  • social workers who spoke about their role


  • the Stop Smoking Service


  • psychologists
  • CNWL’s partners at ARCH – WDP, Humankind and Build on Belief
  • Outreach workers

 The mayor said she enjoyed the virtual tour and looked forward to returning to the service to find out more.
