‘Red levels of staffing are the norm’: NHS workers on coping with Covid
13th January 2022 - The Guardian
The number of Covid patients in hospitals in England and Scotland has continued to rise this week, as NHS England reached a deal with private hospitals to free up beds amid the outbreak of Omicron cases.
Meanwhile, Covid staff absences in England rose to their highest level since the introduction of the vaccine. The number of NHS workers in England off sick because of Covid was up by 41% in the week to 2 January, according to the latest figures.
Five health workers describe some of the challenges they are facing, including understaffing, waiting times and bed-blocking.

These are the words I said to my GP on the December 2020 when I finally went to see her.
I am writing this to, explain my prolonged absence from work, my lived experience as a member of staff working through this pandemic, because I feel guilty, but I also feel my mixed emotions are valid and should be heard.
