12 Certitude Annual Review 2017 An inspired life has purpose Marianne “John and I have known each other for many years.As a colleague, John inspires me – he is a problem solver and an ideas man and his work makes a real difference to people’s lives. Since Alex was born John has supported me. He helps me focus on what Alex can achieve and not what he can’t.” John “When Marianne told me Alex has Down Syndrome, I thought ‘she will be so proud of him’. I am proud that I have Down Syndrome and I push myself. I have achieved everything I wanted to. I would tell Alex to be brave and challenge yourself. You can achieve anything if you work for it.” John and the rest of the Treat Me Right! team train health professionals across NW London to better understand the support needs and reasonable adjustments that can be made for people with learning disabilities when using health care services.
