Carol is a Senior Physiotherapist with 19 years NHS experience and specialises in Children's Neurorehabilitation, working at the Children's Hospital in Oxford. She provides acute respiratory Physiotherapy in the Children's Critical Care Unit, including weekend and overnight on calls, for those on ventilators or respiratory support who would otherwise deteriorate.
Before the COVID19 epidemic Carol was enjoying a year long sabbatical in South Africa. She cut her trip short to return to the NHS to provide Physiotherapy staffing support to the adult critical care/medical teams.
Carol said "Wearing the level 2 PPE is taking some getting used to, especially when we are handling tiny babies and children on ventilators as well as trying to offer a friendly smile for parents. Seeing the effect of Covid19 first hand on the NHS system has completely reinforced that returning 4 months early from my career break was the right thing to do to directly help those in need.
My dedicated NHS colleagues and friends supported me to have my career break when it was a difficult time for our team, now it is my turn to support them as we all find our way through this unprecedented healthcare crisis.
I would also like to say a HUGE thank you to all the British Skydiving members who are directly and indirectly supporting the NHS and all key/essential workers. We really do appreciate it and every kind gesture really does make a difference and keep us going."
