  1. Dear Claire,

    this sounds so familiar! I too work within an outreach service as a PDN for the level 1 areas in 'normal' times. I have been working clinically within the critical care units (from 2 units to 4 during peak surge) and experienced the same amazing professional camaraderie that got us all through the initial preparatory days of the waiting game, to then the full onslaught of a peak like we have never experienced. With that came physical challenges, emotional angst and toil, dilemmas and conflict. We are now entering an even more strange lull, where we are keen to embrace moving forwards out of lock down but anxious about what that will mean and the impact for us in a few weeks/ months time. We still haven't returned to outreaching yet, partly due to the demands of the units trying to manage both covid and non-covid pathways and similarly how we will access these different pathways within the ward structures to maintain safety for us, our colleagues and our patients. I am very keen to hear what other areas are finding is working for them and how we are learning from the experiences of the last few months.

    As a health care professional and a patient, Tthank you to you and the wider Patient Safety Learning community for all you have done, are doing and will do.
