OT Show Excellence in Caring Award – the pinnacle of his achievements so far.
In terms of value to healthcare professionals David says:
“Quite simply, I listen. I listen to all involved and use what I have heard like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. I then put them together carefully to get a full and open picture of what challenges are faced, this then gives me a clear idea of what we as a team have to solve. I take pride in my determination to never give up on the best outcome. Abacus has a world-leading product range supported by a caring, pro-active team. We only work with the best quality partners so the whole process, from initial assessment, installation and after care, is efficient and hassle free for clients and supporting professionals.”
