Anaesthetist Dr Rumiko King from St Georges Hospital, thanks the John King Brain Tumour Foundation for the benefits of the Mc Kissock Garden during the COVID 19 pandemic and the importance of ongoing support for the charity.
“Just wanted to say thank you for the roof garden. I’m an anaesthetist and I was deployed to work on the COVID ICU’s for 8 weeks in March and April when we were the busiest. I’ve been moved back to the operating theatres now as things have calmed down. Those weeks on Brodie ICU ward were tough and challenging. But the garden made such a big difference to all of us who worked there. It meant that we could have half an hour in the fresh air to have our lunch. So good for our wellbeing and it was a lovely space to be together with colleagues.
It’s what made those grim weeks bearable for me to be honest with you – so thank you so much from all of us.
