The Cared For – A Book raising money for the NHS by Craig Henry.

Over the course of the last year, Craig Henry has lost the ability to walk, been addicted to opiate pain killers, had spinal surgery, suffered depression and spent 34 nights living inside a hospital. Craig, who is from Sherston, has experienced a journey through public and private healthcare systems and has noted it all down in a new book.

What started as a twinge in his leg, turned into paralysing him and confining Henry to a hospital bed. The world inside the plain walls of healthcare institutions are a bizarre one, from patients smoking inside the ward to people being told they have days left to live in an amplified fishbowl of pain, confusion and fear. The Cared For gives an insight into the NHS and private healthcare systems from the perspective of the hospital bed and through a patient’s vision.

Whilst recovering from his spinal operation Craig began writing his book at home in Sherston. Having witnessed the mounting pressure on the NHS, he wanted the story to do something positive. In this, he chose to donate 50% of proceeds of the book to the hospital ward that took such excellent care of him in a hope that the money can help future patient care in that hospital.

‘The Cared For is a tale of hope in an all hating world.’

The book is available to buy from Amazon, Link Below.
