University Hospitals Birmingham Conference

Type: Pledge

Carers Week Conference took place at University Hospitals Birmingham on 13 June and delegates pledged to make a difference.

Massive thanks to our great friend Dr Dawn Chaplin, Head of Patient Experience and Bereavement University Hospitals Birmingham for inviting Tommy to speak at the Recognising the Needs of the Carer in an Acute Setting Conference during Carers Week.

We were so honoured a few years back when Dawn and the team named a room at one of  hospitals at the trust in Honour of Tommy’s mum Joan.

We had a brilliant day listening, learning and meeting remarkable people and being inspired by the wonderful people and pledge wall.

Thank you to all for a great day of celebrating carers and caring.
