With thanks to Jane Joy senior nursing lecturer at Glasgow University school of Nursing for inviting me back to speak to nursing students.

I was a guest speaker there last month at Nursing Development day and Jane has kindly invited me back to speak to first year students on November 18th.

Earlier that day I will be attending and on the Shortlist for the NHSGG Chairman's Ambassador Award for improving patents experience.

So a proud day on two counts attending awards, meeting and speaking to our future nurses.

  1. Hello Tommy, thank you for making this video and for your work raising awareness of dementia and its impact on both the person with dementia and their carers. It's great that you are able to speak with nursing students and highlight the extent of sufferers both at present and in the predicted number of people who will be affected in Scotland in the years to come, I'm a nurse about to retire at the end of my career and in my student days there was very little if indeed any education about dementia, outwith nurses training to be psychiatric nurses. Nurse training is very different now, more and more people affected by dementia are coming through in acute general hospital wards and education/awareness of the problems both patients and their carers have is vital. Thank you for giving sufferers - patients AND carers - a voice.
