You can hear Alex at various times right across the way. He says: "My sister-in-law is a carer, and works extremely hard whilst bringing up her son as a single parent too. "I have huge admiration for the care sector, which dates back to my own stint in Sheffield Children's Hospital in 1991 having a leg lengthening operation. The nurses were just fantastic, and I feel this is my opportunity to give something back to a profession that has faced unprecedented challenges over the last year. "I am really excited to be part of this wonderful team of broadcasters, each of whom bring their own unique life experience to Care Radio, and to be part of."
