Our Project Engagement Lead, Tommy Whitelaw has been awarded the Musgrove Park Hospital “Going the Extra Mile” (GEM) award. Nominated by the Dementia Champions and Care of Older Peoples teams, in recognition of the inspiration he has given to everyone who attended his talks at Musgrove Park.
The GEM awards are normally awarded to members of staff – but the teams wanted to make an exception to show how much they appreciated the motivation Tommy inspires in us all to “make a difference”.
Irene, Laura and myself are so very proud and have been inspired by people`s passion and commitment at Musgrove Park and how staff have turned pledges into actions.
Tommy and the team would like to give a big thanks to everyone at @ and NHS Taunton and Somerset for the fantastic honour of receiving this award. It makes the tough days all the more worth it, when receiving such appreciation for the work we do.
