Sepsis Survivor, .
Tom is a writer and inspirational speaker on the subjects of sepsis, patient experience and resilience. In December 1999 his wife Nicola was expecting their second child. Having previously worked as an actor and in Corporate Banking he was looking forward to becoming the main breadwinner again. Instead he developed sepsis from a routine dental examination and spent the best part of 2000 in hospital, including months in intensive care, endless reconstructive surgery, and rehabilitation. Tom lost his legs below the knee and arms below the elbow, as well as much of his face.
