After getting inundated with a tonne of donations during the first lockdown, BHRUT, which runs King George and Queen’s Hospitals, is asking for that generosity to be re-directed to those who need it most.
The daughters of a man who died at King George Hospital, two weeks after he contracted coronavirus under its care, say they were shocked to see a Covid patient coming and going from the ward for cigarette breaks.
Academic associations across the country are calling on the government to support “a new deal for higher education” saying a temporary bailout isn’t enough to help them get through the pandemic and beyond.
Starting today Queen’s and King George hospitals are postponing all routine, planned surgeries and stopping all outpatient appointments including chemotherapy as the trust has seen an increase in seriously ill patients with Covid-19.
Let’s get physical! One of the dangers of lockdown is to be lulled into laziness, watching too many box sets, and eating and drinking too much, but there is no excuse to not start exercising to get fit and stay healthy.
