“After having a road accident in 2009, I was left with progressive and degenerative nerve damage, classing me as disabled. This also prompted me to join Voices for Health which later became part of Healthwatch. My role as a Healthwatch volunteer, I believe, is very important as I know what discrimination feels like and no one should be left out just because of the costs involved with supporting people who need a bit of extra help. A voice to the silent, and knowing that someone cares - that is what Healthwatch is to me."
