  • Never been this proud showing off these mask marks after discharging a patient to the ward who's been with us for 2 months and went through a lot. He was really sick back then the last time I looked after him and my heart was heavy because I really thought he couldn't make it. To my surprise after receiving the hand over yesterday that he's for discharge, I looked back the notes and I couldn't believe what I saw. He looked totally different, he independently transferred himself to the wheelchair (it was not even a bed discharge), conversing with me saying "Thank you so much for all your help and for saving my life", his words really hit me and made me emotional, looking back after all the sacrifices we made as a frontliner and an ITU nurse, I am grateful to God that a number of them won the fight and I am very much proud to be part of this team. Well done guys! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 our almost 3 straight months of working in a COVID UNIT was a roller coaster ride.. #nhsstaff #ITUnurse #nhsheroes #nhs #adultcriticalcareunit #15thfloor

In memory of those who we have lost during this pandemic, and to thank those who have gone out into the front lines, risking their lives every day in order to save others. We truly do not deserve such heroes. Please remember that those who have passed, are never always truly gone. They will always be with you throughout your life, watching over you, and will live on in your memory and in your heart. This pandemic effects everyone, and the least we can do is be there for each other during this tough time. 
Stay at home. Save lives. Protect the NHS

Please stay safe ❤️

I love the quote by the wonderful Maya Angelou which says "our legacy is every soul that we encounter, every person that we reach out to".
Every day as midwives we leave a footprint in our work.... we have the privilege to meet so many.....from brand newly born souls to newly formed families.
We greet new mums and support nervous partners. As midwives we also work alongside our colleagues & fellow teams. We interact & reach out to them.
Our potential to leave a positive legacy in all of these area is far reaching. Our potential to reach out with kindness & compassion is extraordinary. Our potential to be a footprint of significance is astonishing.
It is a gift & I try remind myself of that each shift. I try to leave a legacy of kindness....
Every soul matters 💕

  • Midlands-based Vaughtons, makers of the iconic Aston Martin badge that adorn every model of the British sports car maker, is today launching an NHS Rainbow Badge priced at £9.99 with profits going to NHS Charities Together.

Every badge is hand-crafted in the UK using traditional methods by Vaughtons' expert team of badge makers. Each badge is stamped and polished using tooling which has been in operation since 1819. Bright rainbow-coloured enamel is then also applied by hand.

Badges can be ordered directly from www.vaughtons.com for £9.99 including packaging and postage.

Nick Hobbis, Vaughtons' Managing Director, said: “The country has pulled together throughout this difficult time with unanimous, grateful support for the NHS and the carers who have put their lives on the line and worked tirelessly, and continue to do so, for those who have been affected by the Coronavirus. “The rainbow has become a visible symbol of hope and gratitude. Creating this badge by using our skills is Vaughtons’ unique way of giving back. We very much hope that this Rainbow Thank You badge will become the 21st century ‘poppy’, enabling us to raise valuable funds for charities supporting NHS workers and volunteers.” Ellie Orton, Chief Executive of NHS Charities Together said: “Thank you Vaughtons for donating the profits from this pin badge to NHS Charities Together. These funds will help us continue to support NHS workers, volunteers and patients impacted by COVID-19. What a lovely way to say ‘thank you’ to those who deserve it most.” Vaughtons is based in the jewellery quarter in Birmingham and was established in 1819 by Howard Vaughton. The company has a reputation for making iconic high-quality metalware including automotive badges for Aston Martin and McLaren, plus medals for the Olympics, the PGA, the English Premier League as well as the Six Nations Rugby.

The company also has long established relationships with global Royalty.

The pin badges will initially be available with either gold or silver plating, with a sterling silver and a 9ct gold options to follow. #nhsheroes #covid19 #astonmartin

  • A lot of hard work, motivation and dedication goes into surviving each year at medical school.However, it’s also important to realise that whilst we aim for getting the best grades as possible, the ultimate aim is to become a good doctor.And yes whilst you need to pass the year to progress, some of the best doctors may not have been the best academically but aimed to learn like someone’s life will depend on it in the near future.So don’t beat yourself up or compare yourself to others- comparison is the thief of all joy and whilst the journey may be hard, enjoy the journey whilst you grow through it. Carry on and do you 💪🏻 but aim to learn the content not just to pass the exam but to make a competent doctor afterwards.As they say, all stars shine bright.If you made it into medical school then someone at interview saw your sparkle ! #mbbs #medlife #inspiration #motivation #studygram #study #uni #hardworkpaysoffs #doctors #nhsheroes #nhs #aspiringdoctor #graduate #exam #medicine #medicalschool #gradmed #life #keepgoing #youcandoit #selflove #revision

  • The perfect cover girl @rachelmillar. Don’t get me wrong, I like to see the likes of @victoriabeckham mother of 4, successful business woman, supporting and empowering women through her amazing charity work BUT to see a fellow midwife gracing that front page has filled me with immense pride. This is the true and real version of a woman who empowers women every single day of her working life. Who witnesses new life being bought into the world and watches as a mother is created.  She experiences unimaginable sadness, she cares, gives, encourages, teaches, leads and loves.  Thank you @britishvogue. My new favourite cover...and always will be 💙 #womenempoweringwomen #midwife #vogue #britishvogue #realwomen #proudtobeamidwife #frontlineheroes #nhsheroes #nhs #voguecover

He takes care of some of the the frail people in our society and those most at risk of dying of Coronavirus. He is also my husband. #royalcornwallhospital #nhsheroes #nhsfrontline

  • ⭐ Why a Pa & not a Dr? ⭐

This answer will be different for everybody, however for me there were a few reasons:
🔸️ Length of study: so i was already a 'mature student' doing my first degree which was a BSc in Forensic Science. I am keen to begin work as soon as possible and there is a huge difference between 2 and 4/5 years.
🔸️ The Physician Associate role gives me everything i want from a career; working in medicine, a fufilling job, people interaction & excellent job prospects.
🔸️ Being a relatively new role, at the moment there isn't huge career progression like there is for a Dr. However, for me, this is balanced by regular hours and not have to constantly rotate in different hospitals.
🔸️ Generalist background - the idea of being able to work in different specialties throughout my career was a huge selling point.

Hopefully this has helped any prospective students in deciding if the PA role is for them 🩺

  • Art is providing a meditative calm and focus for me at this time. Also it helps my mind. 
I will be selling a series of unique pastel drawings created during lockdown as part of the #artistsupportpledge

Covid-19 Wonderland Day-53
29.7 x 42cm (A3) soft and oil pastel on pastel paper
£200 (plus P&P)

Please DM me if interested.

@artistsupportpledge - brainchild of @matthewburrowsstudio. 
It’s a simple concept, you post images of your work that you are willing to sell for no more than £200 each (not including shipping). Every time you reach £1000 of sales you pledge to buy another of the artists work for £200.

  • Art is providing a meditative calm and focus for me at this time. Also it helps my mind.
    I will be selling a series of unique pastel drawings created during lockdown as part of the #artistsupportpledge

    Covid-19 Wonderland Day-53
    29.7 x 42cm (A3) soft and oil pastel on pastel paper
    £200 (plus P&P)

    Please DM me if interested.

    @artistsupportpledge - brainchild of @matthewburrowsstudio.
    It’s a simple concept, you post images of your work that you are willing to sell for no more than £200 each (not including shipping). Every time you reach £1000 of sales you pledge to buy another of the artists work for £200.

  • Just a quick little run ✔️
.
.
Does running still count if it’s a little run?! Planned to do intervals tonight but (as per this week) errr... It didn’t work out! Intervals will now be on the agenda first thing tomorrow morning and so tonight I thought I’d just go for 1 mile out, 1 mile back kinda leg spin! .
.
Feeling like all the zone 2 heart rate training is helping because although I was pushing a little bit harder tonight, I managed to maintain my pace and it didn’t feel too bad 😁. A few months ago that would have required true all out effort but tonight felt so good 😊. Sometimes it can feel like no running progress is being made or you’ve plateaued but I felt like this was a small step of progress for me - plus the sun was shining ☀️
.
.
Weirdly looking forward to my interval session tomorrow and I’ve programmed my Garmin to tell me what to do (only recently learnt it has this feature), so only one thing for it... set the alarm clock ⏰!! .
.
Hope you’ve all had a wonderful Thursday and achieved something that has made you smile? 
Right off to do the 8pm clap for our NHS heroes... see you there! .

  • It may be sunny outside but please remember all the thousands of doctors and nurses who are sweltering in the hospital, having to basically wear plastic bags to go in and see their patients, wearing masks that mean they’re breathing back in the hot air that they’re breathing out. We don’t have the luxury of air con to keep us cool. We’re going in to care for patients who are isolated and alone because nobody can visit them, families who have all been admitted and are all battling this alone, patients who are doctors, nurses or carers themselves who caught this awful virus trying to care for those who are already sick, patients who’ve woken up from 30 day comas to find they’re now a single parent to 4 young children because their wife didn’t make it. This illness may not of affected any of your family or your friends, but it’s still affecting so many and devastating lives . Stay safe and remember the government advice is still to stay home as much as possible❤️

  • YOUTUBE & PINTEREST ✨ (link in bio) Good morning, I’ve decided to expand my nursing social media by creating a YouTube Channel & a Pinterest account. I’ve always been too intimidated to start a YouTube Channel, but I’ve gained so much confidence from the love and support I’ve gotten on this Instagram page, that I thought I’d give it a try! My main inspiration was @mynursingadventure for the channel! Go check hers out, it’s so good! I also thought because I’m obsessed with Pinterest, that I would expand over there too and create some boards for inspiration I.e. my own from my insta, then some for fitness, health & beauty etc. I’ve used a page to group all my social media links together so it’s easier for you to access - it’s in my bio. Please go subscribe/follow me 💗💗

  • Here’s a little  #ᴛʜʀᴏᴡʙᴀᴄᴋᴛʜᴜʀsᴅᴀʏ to baby nurse Louise 😆
.
I always knew I wanted a career that involved health and helping people.
.
Nursing seemed like the obvious choice 👩‍⚕️
.
I spent 3 years studying to get my degree and then a further 1 year to obtain a post-grad in Health Promotion 🤓
.
As stressful as it could be, I did love it (most days) but it also sparked my desire for a change in career 🤔
.
As rewarding as it was, I wanted to help in a different kind of way.
.
I wanted to be able to help PREVENT chronic lifestyle disease rather than treat it.
.
I hated seeing the suffering patients and their families went through, their lives cut short because of illnesses that could potentially be prevented 💔
.
I want everyone to be fit, healthy and happy!
.
I want everyone to still be able to enjoy the good stuff in life 🍷🍔🍫 #balance
.
I want to educate and inspire others and show them it’s possible to still be happy while enjoying healthy food 😄
.
I’m glad I’ve experienced both sides of health care because it’s allowed me to truly discover my passion and given me the opportunity to start my own business doing what I love 💖
.
Side note: I’m back working for the NHS but only temporarily until this pandemic is over!
