Tilly Hale Award

Sarah Skyrme has received the 2019 Tilly Hale Award from the Faculty of Medical Sciences (FMS) Engagement team.

Sarah is working with Jeremy Richard, an animator, who will be developing a short film based on Sarah’s experience of poor health due to liver disease.

Animation is now being used more widely to explore social issues, and the film will be used as a focal point for discussion with patient groups, members of the public, clinicians, and academics.

It will highlight some of the challenges and fears that serious illness can bring, and depict the need for compassion and understanding.
