In Conversation with Greg Weston
In June 2011, Greg suffered a fall during a weekend away, hitting his head on a curb. Taken by ambulance to hospital, he fell into a coma and was placed on a life support machine for one month. After three months in hospital, Greg transferred to the Royal Leamington Spa Rehabilitation Hospital and underwent neurological rehabilitation for 13 months. Radio Warneford’s Sue Dolman chats to Greg about his rehabilitation experience, his challenges, his ambitions and how he helps other patients on their road to recovery. Thank you Greg for sharing with us your journey. Published: 12 May 2019
