Crookesmoor, Sheffield

But I remember absolutely the first person who I went to see who I knew had it. And I remember putting on the PPE and goingin there and I was absolutely terrified. I just thought, we don’t really know anything about this. We just don’t really know. We’re being told it’s okay. But is it? I don’t know. But at the end of the day, this is my job. And she’s there and she needs to be seen and I walked in, I could feel my heart pounding and I just thought, oh my goodness me, what do I do here? She’d been told that she had COVID. But no one had really actually said anything else to her at all. And as soon as I started talkingto her, it was fine. Because she was just avery, very scared person in a bed who needed someone to look after her and talk to her. There weren’t any magic wands that we could wave but we could comfort people and we could look after them and we could we could give of ourselves to them.
