Inspirational Local Healthcare

Too many of the positive things going on in our community fail to get the attention they deserve. This morning, I returned to The Children's Trust, the amazing charity in Tadworth specialising in children's brain injuries. They do incredible work giving youngsters with the most heart-breaking of conditions hope of a better quality of life. It's one of those places that really moves you. I dropped in today to hear from the (relatively) new Chief Executive, Dalton Leong, on the Trust's plans for the future - both in developing the scope and remit of what they do in Tadworth, but also helping those youngsters with their ongoing rehabilitation once they return home.

Then, in the afternoon, I met up with Jonathan Quy. He is one of the Elmbridge community representatives elected to Kingston Hospital's Council of Governors. He's a local businessman with a young family, who was impressed with Kingston Hospital and wanted to put something back. So he stood for election, when Kingston Hospital achieved Foundation Status, and now he's our representative at the hospital. He will be joining me at some of my future local public meetings, so he can hear more from local residents and explain a bit about the direction of the hospital going forward.
