I am 65 and a recently retired GP in Stratford-upon-Avon. I was South Warwickshire’s Mental Heath and Dementia Lead for more than 15 years. I am bi-polar.I have enjoyed a lifetime of sport and currently represent Wales over 65’s hockey at Super Grandmasters level.
Through my work as a G.P and my own personal experience I understand and empathise with people who have dementia, depression and social isolation and those that are just plain lonely.
There are over 200 sporting Memories Foundation clinics nationwide but the Midlands is a bit of a black hole. I plan to start a Society in Stratford-Upon-Avon later this year at Stratford-Upon-Avon Sport’s Club and make it a cornerstone of a community hub.
