Sam and Jenny, childcare support for NHS workers
Sam Bresland and Jenny Pewsey are 5th year medics seeing the cohort in the year above fast-tracked through graduation. This experience has propelled them to find ways to support NHS staff by setting up the Edinburgh branch of MedicShare: a way for medical students and others to provide childcare for NHS workers. Sam and Jenny tell us about their work with MedicShare, and how they themselves are managing the social distancing, and finding different levels of interpretation and conscientiousness about what ‘distancing’ means. We also talk about where they were when the lockdown happened – a moment in time that almost froze us in whatever location we happened to be at the time.
