I sustained a T6 complete spinal cord injury after my vehicle hit an Improvised Explosive Device whilst serving in Afghanistan with the RAF. I was treated in the Queen Elizabeth hospital in Birmingham before being moved onto the Midland Centre for Spinal Injuries in Oswestry and then to DMRC Headley Court where I continued to do further rehabilitation. Meeting the Armed Forces Peer Support Officer whilst at Headley Court got me interested in volunteering with SIA which gave a valuable insight into the role that PSO’s play in supporting newly injured patients, families and NHS staff. I hope to continue to make a difference in the lives of all those I meet as Peer Support Officer for the East of England.
