Event: Great North Run 2023, on 10 September 2023
We raise money to support Gateshead Health to enhance the care to our patients

Story

Firstly, I am running to raise money for the Older Person's Fund at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Gateshead. As a Consultant Geriatrician there for the last 3 years, I have seen the great work the hospital does for older people but we can always do more to improve their experience. Hopefully, this will go a little way to helping with that.

Secondly, the photo atop this page is me, 6 years ago, when I last did the Great North Run. Having not done any serious exercise since then, signing up for the run was definitely my attempt to recapture a little bit of the fitness I use to have. It is not going to be easy!

Thank you for your donation. Please include "Older Persons Fund" or my name in the payment reference to ensure the money goes to the right place.

About the charity

We want to improve the experience of our hospital for our patients by purchasing extra equipment or training which will make the difference. If you wish to support a particular ward or department, please state which one in your message and our finance team will ensure it goes to the right place.
