Tommy Whitelaw

  • Learning and development sessions based on the principles of Intelligent Kindness on the importance of person-centred care and active listening across all roles and sectors.
  • Reflect on how you can make a difference through your service provision and practice.

Tommy’s talks take you on a personal journey; from his experience becoming a full-time carer overnight for his mum Joan who had Vascular Dementia, to the obstacles and challenges they faced in isolation to the interactions they had throughout their caring journey that made a difference to their health and wellbeing.

Taking the key messages of the Dementia Carer Voices ‘You Can Make A Difference’ campaign, the ‘What Matters To You?’, Intelligent Kindness movement and Chief Nursing Officer vision, his talk aims to empower individuals across all roles and sectors to reflect on how they can make a difference through their practice.

Tommy's passion for his work and the project has not gone unnoticed, sharing key messages at talks for and in partnership with Professor Fiona McQueen, Chief Nursing Officer for Scotland and Professor Jane Cummings, the recently retired Chief Nursing Officer for England.
