Louise Stead, RSCH

Louise Stead has a big job on her hands. She is the Chief Executive at the Royal Surrey County Hospital in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic.

But this morning (April 8) she took the time to take questions from Martin Giles on the situation at the hospital. She describes how the hospital is coping, the number of cases they have and the supply levels of protection (PPE) and oxygen equipment, including the essential ventilators for more seriously affected patients.

She also relates to us the awareness of her colleagues to the support from the local community and offers the best way we can continue to show that support. (See below for RSCH Emergency Appeal.)

    I “escaped” the Royal Surrey five days before Christmas, following an operation.

    I would like thank them for the excellent treatment received.

    I have heard just how stressful the work is first hand. The tiredness and stress in the voice of my sister-in-law, a nursing sister at Frimley Park, was extremely noticeable yesterday. I hope all the staff at the Royal Surrey are keeping well and offer my appreciation for their current work. I do hope to hear that you have all survived this extremely stressful and dangerous situation.
