On 28th of February 2021 Fred Woodcock, our Dive Manager suffered a stroke.
He was taken to Southend Hospital and treated by the fabulous team of professionals on Benfleet Ward, part of the Acute Stroke Unit.
Due to the nature of his condition, he was transferred by a specialist transport team via Ambulance to the Royal London Hospital Stroke Unit in Whitechapel.
Fred received cutting edge treatment to fit a stent in his neck, saving his life.
The prompt action of these medical professionals prevented Fred from suffering life-changing disabilities.
We would like to sincerely thank all of those involved in his care with a particular mention to the Nursing teams and Doctors Ahmed Elleith & Dr Farhad Huwez during unprecedented demands for their Services.
