Ms Iyamide Thomas of the Sickle Cell Society conducts innovative sickle cell awareness sessions as part of the NHS Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia Screening Programme’s ‘Family Legacy’ outreach project. This involves screening a British Nigerian DVD drama (The Family Legacy)at facilitated community sessions in places such as family homes, barber shops, churches, colleges etc. This video is footage from a session at a Caribbean restaurant and includes an interesting question and answer session as well as sickle cell service users relating their experiences and the type of service provision they want.
