I’m anxiously sitting here on a children’s ward waiting for a telephone call to say that my son is ready to come back from theatre. We’ve met loads of lovely people in the hospital today, all doing a bloody amazing job. I’m reminded once again of how brilliant our healthcare system is and of how it’s made so by the fabulous people who make up its staff. Truly wonderful people who work damn hard giving their absolute all, often without much (or anything) in the way of recognition or thanks (and no, doorstep clapping doesn’t count).
Not that I need much reminding. I worked ‘in’ the system for almost 20 years and had the privilege of working with some of the kindest, most hard-working, inspirational and compassionate people I know. So I’m just taking this moment to ‘thank you’.
From the bottom of my heart…
