This edition is packed full of stories from our patients, public and staff from across the North West.
Paramedic Frank Allen shares a story close to his heart after his family friend Clare was fatally injured in Speke in Liverpool at the start of the year. He talks about how her children turned their loss into a lasting legacy by launching a campaign ‘Be Aware for Clare’ which went viral overnight.
Mum of three Camille from Cheshire talks to us about what it is like to live with epilepsy, how her son saved her life and what her warning signs for a seizure are.
We talk to our Director of Quality Improvement Maxine Power about why being open to learning and testing change is crucial to any improvement idea.
We shed light on homelessness which is a difficult circumstance for people to find themselves in, particularly this time of year as the weather conditions plummet.
We met with teenager Jade and four year old Christian from Rochdale who have been making waves on social media with their signing and singing videos. Sign language has been an amazing tool for Christian, who suffered a brain injury when he was born which led him to develop cerebral palsy, and it is thanks to Jade he is learning to communicate with the world.
