Tommy lives and breathes sharing his experiences of caring for someone with dementia.
Travelling up and down the country, Tommy talks at conferences, events, universities, organisations and spends time visiting our hospitals and speaking directly with staff ‘on the ground’ about the needs of vulnerable patients and their carers.
Tommy is acutely aware that staff are people too, who have their own lives to live and who might be carers when not at work and relatives and carers must be aware of that too.
Unable to hide his delight at winning a Chairman’s Award, Tommy wants to take this opportunity to say thank you. Thank you to his nominator and thank you to the judging panel.
He is honoured to not only receive this award but to get the support from NHSGGC staff and the kindness they show him alongside being given this fantastic opportunity to speak out and help others. He really couldn’t be more thrilled.
