In October 1993 I found out what a burns unit was, after spending 3 months in one in Birmingham. The fire caused me 67% third degree burns. I can’t thank the surgeons & staff enough for my recovery and treatment over the past 26 years. I’ve been in theatre twice a year since my accident and been having artificial skin implants since 2002. I have been attending PPI meetings since the QE opened and I’ve met a lot of interesting people in that time, which I find very rewarding.
