WATCH THIS: “Hear us goddamn roar!”

Watch Molly deliver her poem at the RCN Congress.
This is what this blog is about.
And it’s what nursing is about.

I have been invited on to Michael Collie’s show on Radio Hereford and Worcester on Sunday.
Doubtless you wil have better things to do at 8:20am on a Bank Holiday Weekend but don’t worry.
If you want to listen in I will post the iplayer link on the blog which you can catch up with for 7 days.
Spare me a thought. Would love to get the good news across.

A&E Worcester: Thank you for your kindness in my worst nightmare

Dear David,

It’s hard to write this but I feel I must.
Two weeks ago my wife (name omitted) collapsed at home and was rushed into A&E at Worcester. It was totally out of the blue as she was always so fit and well. I am disabled myself but followed along with my two daughters.
You can’t imagine the nightmare of that time. I was beside myself and in shock as the staff tried all they could to help her.
After three hours of waiting the news was broken to me that (Name omitted) had died.
That is where I first met you and you said some prayers and spent time with us.

Now the funeral is over, but I had to write in to thank the staff, and particularly the young staff nurse and yourself, for your care and compassion. This has been one of the worst times of my life and still is, but I couldn’t have asked for kinder or more caring treatment. I really felt as if (name) mattered to you all.
Spare me a thought as I try and carry on with this huge hole left in my life. But thank you for all you did.(Name provided but omitted)
