David Thomas is 53 years old, married and father of three children and two step-children, a full-time carer for his elderly Father who has Dementia. As Carers they are told to have a hobby to keep themselves sane and in touch with the outside world and politics has always been a passion of his. He is a huge supporter of Charlotte Leslie in Bristol North West, who has got him campaigning locally and helping out on a voluntary basis.
It would stipulate a maximum number of hours, and ensure payment for the whole time at work. It is no different from what we expect from our haulage industry.
As a carer, I have seen how patients could be supported, families helped and money saved by keeping elderly and vulnerable people out of hospital.
