I will be working from St Francis in Berkhamsted from the 27th November until Christmas. It is hoped that this will lead to a cross pollenated of ideas and learning between the work we both undertake.

I was lucky enough to work with and learn from patients and staff at St Francis earlier this year. It is hoped that this short term residency will bring symbiotic benefits to the Hospice of St Francis and the work I carry out for the Digital Legacy Association and MyWishes.
The TalkCPR team are pleased to announce that the project has won a prestigious award from the Royal College of Physicians. This is a project that I have helped develop and built the website for.

Gaming and geek culture inspired me as a child and continues to inspire me as an adult. I am therefore very, very excited about the Retroplay Festival coming to Leighton Buzzard. With all profits going to the Autism Bedfordshire charity be sure to put this in your diary…

Over the last two years I have helped with the development a toolkit by the Velindre Cancer Centre called TalkCPR. The aim of the project TalkCPR’ is to ease communication and dialogue between patients with palliative illnesses and their healthcare professionals in relation to the complex area of Do Not Attempt Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Decisions (DNACPR). In order to facilitate effective communication and transfer good quality knowledge to patients and those close to them, a novel video and website approach was used .
TalkCPR won an NHS Wales Award within the ‘Improving Quality Together (IQT) Methodology’ category.
