I've been working at the National Spinal Injuries Centre at Stoke Mandeville Hospital since 2017. My role is funded by a charity called Wheelpower.
I'm a wheelchair skills demonstrator and mentor, I help support in patients who recently suffered a spinal cord injury which, as a life changing event, affects many aspects of life. Many patients will need to use a wheelchair for life. My job is to help patient recovery, alongside the permanent medical staff. Patients can range from children to mature adults. It's a thoroughly enjoyable job which gives me a huge amount of satisfaction.
