Sir Michael Parkinson and the 'Dignity - Who cares?' event
Sir Michael hosted the very successful "Question time" session at the 'Dignity - Who cares' event in Leeds. The other panel members included the previous care services minister, Revd Dr Inderjit Bhogal, OBE, CEO of Y&H Faiths Forum, Andrew Harrop, Policy Manager from Age Concern and Help the Aged and Karen Jenkins, Head of Health at UNISON. A good variety of questions were asked by the audience and there were interesting, thorough anwers in return.
After this session Sir Michael visited the market place where he met and congratulated the Dignity in Care award - regional winners. The Dignity Champions displayed the work they have done on the campaign in the market place.
To make this day even more interactive, the theatre group Aftathought offered up a number of innovative sketches on what Dignity means, which were widely enjoyed
