Staff stories of Covid-19 pandemic featured in new book

A book documenting the story of Covid-19 as told by those who worked through it has been published by University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW) NHS Trust.

Pandemic: Stories from the NHS Frontline features 37 tales of pride, courage, fear, dedication, flexibility, endurance and expertise.

The book is available to buy now in kindle (£2.99) and hardcover (£9.99) formats, with all proceeds going to UHCW Charity.

The project was a collaboration between our Research and Development and Health and Wellbeing departments to help participants learn new skills as well as reflect on their Covid-19 experience.

Angel Magar, Research Grant co-ordinator, said: “All authors are UHCW staff who worked with professional writers to give their own unique insight into how the pandemic affected them both personally and professionally.

“The result is an emotional rollercoaster of stories that look back on the challenges of an unprecedented time, but highlight the spirit and togetherness of UHCW colleagues.”

The stories cover periods during 2020 and 2021 and so reflect different waves of the pandemic. Patient confidentiality has been protected throughout.

UHCW Charity Director, Jo O’Sullivan, said: “We wholeheartedly believe in supporting initiatives such as this that support the wellbeing of our staff, which in turn leads to improved patient care.

“Sales of this book will help UHCW Charity to continue to make things better for our teams, patients and their families for generations to come.”
