In ordinary times, it is already a busy and stressful environment for health workers - but the added pressure of the coronavirus crisis is stretching their resources and resolve.
In the latest episode of Alone Together, join Laudable's Matt Millard, and Morven McIntyre, podcast producer at the Edinburgh Evening News, as they pay tribute to the doctors, nurses, porters, radiologists, and all NHS workers who have shown immense dedication and courage in the face of the pandemic.
Morven gets the Welsh perspective from Will Hayward, political editor at Wales Online, who discusses the pressures on the NHS, as well as touching on the positive, community stories coming out of the country.
Alone Together’s Dan McLaughlin speaks to Dr Katie Rogerson, children’s doctor and co-director of the NHS Million campaign who says that the health service is “not just for Covid-19 - it’s for life”.
And Matt chats to Olivia Strong about her Run for Heroes fundraising appeal. It’s simple: walk, run or cycle 5k, donate a fiver, and nominated 5 others to do the same. With an initial goal of £5,000, Run for Heroes has moved its target to a staggering £5 million - it’s not far off from reaching it.
Alone Together is a Laudable production. Presented and produced by Dan McLaughlin, Morven McIntyre and Matt Millard, and edited by Matt Millard.
