The children of our hospital colleagues feel passionate about slowing the spread of coronavirus and helping their parents this winter.
Nine of them – between the ages of four and 12 – who are children of nurses, doctors and admin staff in the Emergency Department have recorded this video message to encourage everyone to keep doing their bit to help reduce to keep infections down and reduce pressure on the NHS.
Professor Nancy Fontaine, NNUH Chief Nurse and Director of Infection Control, said: “Our thanks go out to Nuala, Cosmo, Annabelle, Immi, Henry, Lucie, Gracie, Frankie, and Freya for sharing this important public message.”
“During this time of the year it is more important than ever that we maintain thorough hand washing, maintaining social distancing and wear face coverings, when needed, to help slow the spread of Covid-19 and other viruses that are more prevalent in the winter.”
The Emergency Department has and will continue to be open throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and has zoning in place for Covid and non-Covid patients who require emergency and urgent care. NHS 111 is contactable 24/7 online or over the phone if you need urgent care or advice.
