Rt Hon Norman Lamb MP - Conference letter of support

Rt Hon Norman Lamb MP

Earlier this month we successfully hosted our annual conference in Nottingham. We were delighted to receive this generous letter of support from the Rt Hon Norman Lamb MP, the Minister of State for Care and Support who has been the Liberal Democrat MP for North Norfolk since 2001.

I wish you every success with the National OCD Conference 2014 – Nottingham.  Over two days delegates will have the chance to hear some inspirational speakers:  not just clinicians on the front line of pioneering research and practice; but also, people and families struggling to live with and recover from OCD, who continue to inspire us with their courage and perseverance.

This conference is a chance to learn from the best, to turn research into daily practice and recognise the key role of professionals, people with OCD, and families in designing and delivering change across the health and care system.
