Meet some of the local key workers you have already told us about.

The Halesowen & Dudley News and the Stourbridge News would like to thank all the local key workers who have stepped up and stepped out to work during the coronavirus pandemic.

From nurses to shop workers, postmen to firemen and binmen to care home workers – we can never thank you enough.

Next week will be publishing a list of names of those local key workers who have kept us safe and kept us going throughout the pandemic in a special pull-out supplement.

 

Here are just a few of the local key workers who you have already told us about.

Send us the name and job for a Black Country coronavirus lockdown key worker who deserves our thanks and recognition, you can add a picture too.

Claire Thompson and Lydia Parker have now been locked down at Brockswood, a local animal sanctuary, away from their homes now for 8 weeks! They are stopping there to ensure they remain safe and healthy so that the animals are still cared for 24/7 while other staff are shielding. Not officially recognised as key workers but animals still need to be rescued/cared for too at this time.

This is my friend and colleague Karen Westwood. She is very experienced orthopedic theatre sister. Since patients have been attending hospital with covid our theatres were turned into more itu spaces. Karen has gone above and beyond caring for patients and making sure emergency surgery has continued. She has been loving after covid patients from day one and hasn't even seen her son or her new baby grandson who was born just before lockdown restrictions were put in place.

The Rapid Response End of Life Team, a community based nursing team that has dealt with patients in their own home who have had a Covid 19 diagnosis from which they will not recover due to other health problems or fragility due to age. The ethos of the team was to enable the patients a comfortable passing in the environment of their choice thus respecting the patients last wishes. The team was previously a palliative care team but were redeployed to meet the current crisis. The team has been very well supported by the Community Nursing Management Team.
