I am a Registered Nurse. I work in the largest hospital in Sheffield.
I would love to be able to lockdown at home with my loved ones.
But I will be going to work every day and doing my job to the best of my ability.
It was my choice 42 years ago to be a nurse but I never expected this situation. I don't expect special treatment - just an appreciation of what all health care professionals will be risking by doing their job every day over the next few months. Not just nurses and doctors but lab techs, porters, domestic and catering staff and clerical workers.
No one knows how ill they will be when they get this virus - and most people WILL get this virus as nobody has immunity. It's just a matter of when.
Please do as you are asked and STAY AT HOME. It really isn't such a hardship is it ?
I won't be posting again
Best wishes to you all.
