Covid-19 impacted on every one of us, in so many different ways.
As a result of the pandemic we have transformed the way we care for our patients, the way we deliver our services, and the way we work together. In the words our staff use to sum it up – ‘there is no going back’.
There are so many incredible stories to share. We’ve brought these highlights together, from where we’ve appeared on national media through to the best bit – our patients recovering from Covid-19 and heading home to their friends and families on a new 'Celebrating our staff and patients' page of our website.
The page includes heart-warming videos of our patients leaving hospital, some of whom have been with of us for weeks.
It also captures how, almost overnight, we had to change the way we delivered our services, from changing thousands of outpatient appointments to virtual clinics and increasing our critical care capacity five-fold, to setting up a renal dialysis unit in just 10 days and developing an innovative new multi-disciplinary training programme to support our Critical Care teams.
And finally, the page shares stories of our incredible staff, who had to be agile and flexible through the peak of the pandemic. Everyone pulled together to look after our patients during the biggest challenge we have ever faced.
