It has been nine months since the UK was first put into a nationwide lockdown with the country clapping for our carers while admiring their courage and determination in the midst of coronavirus.
Now, nurses at Hinchingbrooke Hospital want to say thank you and share Christmas joy with those who supported them earlier this year.
On March 16 the hospital’s elective orthopaedic ward became the Covid-19 receiving ward for the first wave of the pandemic.
Charlene McEwen, who started her career as a secretary at Hinchingbrooke before training to become a nurse, said: “We were not prepared, it was difficult, and still is, but we worked with people across departments to become one team.
“During the most unprecedented time of our careers the nurses were supported by so many – we would like to take this opportunity to thank you all.”
