Robin, who is an author and  President of charity Survival International, became ill  in early March after returning from a skiing trip and came to Derriford Hospital to be cared for.

Whilst with us, Robin’s son Merlin has written in detail about his father, his life story and achievements and his recent illness. Some of these articles are linked to here:

Whilst with us, Robin has been cared for in ICU and on Braunton Ward and visited our secret rehabilitation garden, where he enjoyed the sun on his face and unfiltered fresh air. As he left hospital yesterday to go home, he proudly clutched his #rehablegend badge. We wish Robin and his family all the very best for his recovery and their future.
