Face for radio...

So the last few weeks have been quite a whirlwind. It all began when I agreed to do a small piece for BBC Radio Cornwall. Before I knew it I had been talked into doing a short documentary piece for Inside Out South West.

I met with Jemma Woodman (Producer and presenter) and we came up with a plan to highlight the poor care that amputees receive post operatively. Before I knew it I was being filmed over 3 days as I returned to work. I got the chance to chat with some of my old patients. Despite my initial reticence I actually really enjoyed the experience!

Jemma put together a really nice peace. It was balanced and the tone was perfect. I was so grateful to her for the care she put into the documentary.

Just as it was about to air I was asked to go up to Manchester to appear on Saturday morning BBC breakfast. So I flew up from Newquay and was interviewed live! The shy bloke from Cornwall survived!

The documentary aired and it was well received. It has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times across the world.

So here I am - sitting on a train on my way back from being on ITVs This Morning.... I think now it’s time to retire from the spotlight.

Always leave them wanting more!
