IWRFC Legend Stuart Browne, he of the trademark dummy kick, has had an interesting season. From playing for the 1st XV for the first time in some years away at Gosport, where he played alongside his son Cameron, to his role in the NHS during the coronavirus pandemic, there have been some unexpected turns of events to say the least! We asked Stuart how things were going at work during the ongoing pandemic.
The hospital has prepared well, looking at the worst case scenario, with three field wards set up and ready on the site. Luckily, the Island's figures have not seen the NHS swamped on the Island.
I am working full time in the clinical side of Physiotherapy, as the management side has had to be put on a back burner. I am really enjoying this and it is a change to my past responsibilities. The work is with patients on the ITU ward and with patients on the general wards, helping in their recovery and in rehabbing.
On a personal note, I have been working on my fitness by regularly running to and from work! The Rangers Run Club on Strava is a good motivational tool.
We all at the NHS appreciate the support being shown by the club and by the public, and the offers we have had for help and support.
Please do the right thing and stay at home and stay safe.
Thank you Stu!
