How the times have changed

I am sure that you are all aware of the problems I have had since suffering a Life Threatening TBI 50 years ago

My wife had a stroke recently which left her with a shrunken cerellebum (the part of the brain which controls balance I f I recall correctly) since the scan results came back the amount of support from the hospital, GP is amazing and I can't praise the NHS staff high enough

I wish that I had been given the same support 50 years ago
