Last week saw Tommy speaking at NELFT NHS Foundation Trust Carers Count Conference. Massive thanks to Stephanie Dawe, Chief Nurse and the Member Executive Team – Geraldine Rogers, Rosemary Neilson and all the team at NELFT NHS Foundation Trust for inviting Tommy to speak at the Carers Count Conference.
Tommy had a truly wonderful day was inspired by all the wonderful people he met. The Trust have started a new staff pledge tree.

Below is some pledge we have received over the last week. thanks to each and everyone of you, Team DCV 🙂
Our reception will be a welcoming and friendly place where people can get help.
We will incorporate making a difference into our website and mission statement, and on the website create a specific page for carers and the help they can access (you made the point that it often comes along too late)
We will value the small touches that make a big difference, help prop up other wonderful carers like yourself – Eden Court Medical Practice in Castle Vale
I pledge to continue to look after my patients with kindness, compassion and to teach my GP training to be compassionate. I also pledge to listen more to my mother and share the loneliness she experiences as a dementia carer for my father.
I pledge to do information research that will help people with dementia and those who love them. I lost my dad to dementia/PPA when he was only 67. I miss him every day and I hope he is proud of me – Diane Pennington
I pledge I will listen, take the time to care and treat others as I wish my family to be treated – Lucy Barnsley
I pledge I will make the effort to understand what is important to you so I can help you better – Steve Gabriel
