Manage episode 296281623 series 2419504
This week I am joined by Nick Bailey, Husband, Father and former Detective Sergeant. After serving 18 years as a Police Officer, Nick is now a speaker, talking with organisations about mental health and resilience.
On Sunday 4th March 2018, an assassination attempt was made on former Russian KGB officer Sergei Skripal. Nick attended the Skripal home address and unknowingly became contaminated by the nerve agent Novichok. Nick battled through intensive care but the fight wasn’t over. After leaving hospital he and his family were told not only would they not be able to return home, but their possessions would also need to be destroyed.
This is an incredible story of a family showing resilience and pulling each other through.
