HBA Best Speech Entry 2013 by Tindy C for Radio Fox.
BEST SPEECH PACKAGE: TINDY C INTERVIEWS
FUNDRAISING TEAM ABOUT A SPECIALIST DEMENTIA ROOM AT
LEICESTER ROYAL INFIRMARY
29TH JULY 2012, RADIO FOX
I interviewed Bally Virdee (member of the SERCO security team at LRI) and Billy Hamnett (specialist dementia nurse) about dementia, including symptoms, the wider effects of the disease and problems that can arise within the A & E department.
Due to the ageing population this is a very relevant topic, which affects many people. The LRI have decided to positively tackle issues which may arise within the hospital, as the security team are often called to help calm down patients who are suffering from dementia. These patients can become extremely confused and distressed.
Therefore the security team and others have decided to do a charity event to raise money for a much needed facility within the A & E department (specialist dementia room).
I spoke to them about their personal experiences, how the room will help, and the charity event (Hadrian’s Wall challenge and other fundraising events). The aim of this interview was to promote awareness and to help raise funds for this much needed facility.
