Working through the Covid-19 pandemic was a time like no other for our staff. They rose to the challenge and their dedication and hard work was a testament to their professionalism, teamwork and commitment to patient care.
To help our staff process their thoughts and feelings from the first and second waves we asked them to send their reflections to the Communications Team who documented and archived them on a website to preserve the memories.
The website is a time capsule capturing their inspiring tales of courage and dedication, as well as the spirit of teamwork which endures to this day.
