A generous donation by a GP from Emerson Park has put smiles on faces at King George and Queen’s hospitals.

Dr Tina Teotia writes children’s books alongside working at Dagenham’s Green Lane Surgery.

She said: “Being involved in the Covid fight locally I saw the impact of the virus, especially on children. I do charity work with children anyway, but this time I wanted to do something for kids in the area.”

She has already written five books — three for daughter Ava and two for son Aiden — which she sells on Amazon.

She has donated a box of these books, alongside the proceeds from online sales, to the King George and Queen’s Hospitals Charity.
