As a Respiratory Registrar, I am very much in the thick of things during this pandemic.
Every day I am confronted with the harsh consequences of this novel virus. Thankfully, I am also consistently uplifted by the grit and spirit of my colleagues, and the strength of my patients. These stories deserve to be told, and more importantly, have the power to connect with us all.
Therefore, I am hoping you will allow me to share a few of these tales from the frontline. Hopefully this is not going to hurt, and will read more like Bridget Jones’ Diary – if Bridget was a short, Indian, NHS worker. Oh, and was fond of writing things in bullet points. I should probably start with the bad and end with the good.
