In January this year, John began feeling dizzy and slurred speech after suffering a head injury. He was diagnosed with a suspected brain haemorrhage and his condition was deemed life threatening.

John was sent to Royal Hallamshire Hospital via ambulance and under-went life-saving surgery. After three hours of brain surgery, John was discharged from hospital five days later.

He praised the care, commitment and dedication of the staff who he credits with saving his life, saying: “I realise how lucky I am and life every day is now a bonus for me and my family.”
