Addenbrookes Cambridge – Thank you!

This is a simple, public post of gratitude and thanks to all the Consultants, Doctors, Nurses and Support Staff who looked after me so superbly when I was recently admitted under Blues and Twos to Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge.

Despite all my best attention and adherence to Healthcare Guidelines, COVID-19 snuck in and robbed me of my O2; not a nice experience for sure, but all is well now and each day gets better.

Gratitude is a simple act which can resonate and ripple so far and when life is at risk, I think it’s reasonable to say that it is amplified.

So how does one respond, in saying “Thank You” when the act of giving, extends far beyond expectation?

A Nurse at Addenbrookes had noticed that my D.O.B was imminent; below is the photograph of what she and the team did.

Such care, such thoughtfulness; an act of kindness beyond expectation.

I say it simply but with heartfelt gratitude.

Thank you to all.


About Michael Carr

Specialising in Strategy, Systems and Organisational Design I've had a varied and rewarding career and been fortunate to work for some superb companies such as Courtaulds, Unipart International, Akzo Nobel and more recently Jaguar Landrover, all luminaries of a solid, disciplined and a conservative, though never lacking in innovation, approach to business management and development. Augmenting my career with studying for my MBA at Warwick in the early 90's has given me a balanced and I believe rich resource set to draw upon in my Consultancy Practice. My Clients have been good to me, tolerating my idiosyncrasies, giving me enough rope to go along the journey that I was taking them and hopefully in return I've been able to repay them by raising the bar and their business performance, giving them the results and achievements they were looking for. I really enjoy my work and love the challenge - isn't that what it's all about?
