Hello, my name is Natasha Donovan and I have a question. If you were dying would you want to know?
and from that opening until the moment she left the stage the audience were mesmerised. A packed Rose theatre in Kingston sat captivated from start to finish.
They laughed, they listened, they cheered, they gasped. A presentation of pure ‘Tashmagique” ensued. There were tears, there were smiles but ultimately there was an agreement that we had all witnessed something truly special.
Natasha Donovan has gone from multiple life support machine experiences when battling cancer to becoming a leading voice of NHS patient empowerment. An effervescent optimist fired by determination, she has channelled her negative experiences of poor doctor-patient communication into a force for good to help others. Now Natasha teaches consultants, nurses and students how to clearly and sensitively communicate with patients at one of the world’s leading university hospitals.
