Can you make something fabulous happen with your main resources being passion, determination and relationships? Yes you can. Mary Freer was so inspired by NHS Change day that she gave up her paid job to lead a movement in Australia 1,7012.999 Kilometres (1,0571.387 miles) away. In the last two years Change Day Australia has inspired around 50-60,000 people to make pledges. Some are small, some are huge but all aspire to make a positive difference to health and care systems.

Gandhi said: “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” Mary has taken that advice and is living proof that you can make it happen.
