When one loses a loved one under expected circumstances the impact of the loss experience can be hard to process. When a loved one is harmed, or dies, unexpectedly the sense of loss is magnified, and the processing of the experience made more difficult. This is the situation for individuals and families following, unexpected harm or death following healthcare and treatment, mental health homicide, and fatal domestic abuse. There are three charities that support families who have experienced loss in these circumstances to ask the right questions and to seek the right answers from the public and private providers of health, social care and public service who were involved with the harmed or deceased person in the period preceding the incident of harm/death.
These charities are:
• Advocacy after fatal domestic abuse
• Action against Medical Accidents
My work requires me to support and lead the constructive analysis of the work of health professionals and social care professionals who were involved with the harmed person. I have become aware of how little support there is for families who are trying to understand what has happened. These charities provide the vital support to enable families to do this. I am going to take part in 1x1.5k, 1x3k, 1x4k, 1x6k, 1x9.5 and 1x10k open water swim events between June and September to raise money for them. At the end of September, the money I raise will be divided equally between the three charities to support their work. Which is vital to enabling all health and social care organisations to deliver meaningful openness, honesty, and straight forward understandable explanations of what happened, especially if mistakes were made. All are essential components of the healing and reconciliation process for harm individuals and their families.
I am appreciative of any support you give - thank you.

Well I am confused. I thought I'd just done an update but it has disappeared! So four weeks to go to the Jubilee 9.5K River Swim. It will be the toughest of my challenges for distance as there is no helpful river flow. I'll just have to swim the lot. Managed 7,399K on 13.05.18, short of my target by 101m. Shoulder pain, is a pain! Easy week this week. Hopefully hit 8K over the bank holiday weekend, with a bit of breaststroke if necessary. It's not a race after all! (Yes chuckle all ye who know me.)
