People Participation

Dr. Navina Evans 12/01/18
As a patient and carer, I value small acts of kindness not specified in job descriptions. As a doctor I’m curious about the appetite for positive risk taking among fellow clinicians.

I therefore promise to be a very active, involved and engaged patient!
