I have never worked within a team as cohesive and caring as this one. The second Covid-19 surge saw critical care pushed to numbers never seen before, but we got our patients through it whether they were in the pods, PICU, PACU or SSCU. The third surge has also presented its own challenges and staff are emotionally exhausted. I think it would be well deserved recognition of how brilliant a critical care team we have at Royal Stoke and of the exemplary care we give to our patients to award them.
We communicate, we work together, we help each other, we support one another and we give bloody good care to our patients!
