With great thanks to Karen Dawber (Director Nursing), Mel Pickup (Chief Executive), Debby Hatton, Debbie Hammond, Alison Lynch, Lee Bushels and all the team at Warrington and Halton Hospitals for kind invite to speak at their conference on Thursday in the Education Centre Warrington Hospital.
Tommy along with great friends Chris Mason and Jayne Goodrick (who gave a Dementia Friends session to the board the day before) had the great privilege to visit Warrington Hospital a few months back after a talk they were speaking at together in Wigan and were so inspired by all the work being done by all the team ( you can read more about our visit here WonderfulWarrington ) A big thank you to all the team for the kind invite.
For the second time this year Tommy has left Warrington feeling inspired and very impressed by the passion staff have in both caring for people and the wonderful new wards.
Thank you so much for the kindness, pledges and for all you do.
You can read the pledges and view some photos of the fantastic new wards and garden below.
