Our tommy had the great privilege last Friday to speak to Community Nursing – School Nurses from NHSGG&C with great thanks to Donna Hunter, Jacqui Wray and all who attended the event at the Beardmore Conference Centre.
All the Dementia Carer Voices team would like to thank Donna and NHSGG&C Specialist Children’s Services for the opportunity to attend and speak.
A big thank you for the great kindness on the day and for the inspiring pledges received
