11th November saw our Project Engagement Lead, Tommy Whitelaw speaking about his caring experience, the project and campaign at University Hospital Bristol.  Big thanks to Jo Witherspoon for inviting Tommy to speak at the  Hospitals   and to all colleagues who attended and made pledges to make a difference.

One of Jo`s colleagues heard Tommy speak a few weeks ago in Birmingham.

After the talk Tommy mentioned he would be in Bristol a few weeks later to speak at the South West Leadership Awards.
