These are certainly challenging times and frightening too. I'm missing my clients, the chats, the advice on all sorts of things, the laughs and the happy medicine. Yet I'm also concerned that they all keep safe and well, that we all get through this in one piece.
Nursing in the NHS remains rewarding and I think we will all be changed for ever. I expect that some aspects emerging from the new way of working will become engrained in the NHS culture certainly for the rest of my career and I don't think that is necessary a negative thing to happen.
The heartbreaking stories of fallen NHS staff is truly sad and so too are the stories of everyone else. Yet I'm inspired by the creativeness of Matt Lucas with the Baked Potato song; the resilience of Captain Tom and all the money he has raised; moved by seeing all the rainbows in the neighbours windows and in awe of the kindness displayed of my neighbours toward our elderly neighbours.
Well friends .... until next time, stay safe in the sun and safe at home. Lots of Love and warmest wishes.
