Carers Week 11-17 June Happy 70th Birthday to the NHS! from Jim

20180403_162020

Following his  late wife Tina’s diagnosis of dementia in 2003, Jim Radburn ‘worked tirelessly’ to lobby, gain funding and set up a self-help group run by and for carers. Carers in Hucknall  was started by Jim.  The group aims to offer support to local carers and the people they care for in Hucknall, Nottinghamshire and surrounding areas. Jim has been and still is,  an active campaigner for carers support over the years and was integral in the development and implementation of our Trust Working Age Dementia Service  now coming up to its 10 year anniversary. 

Jim has joined in to help us wish the NHS a very Happy 70th Birthday
