Just a very quick one this evening to ask that you all join me in thinking of Georgie especially tonight and tomorrow. After an incredibly busy few weeks training and recruiting and planning she will be involved in the opening of the new treatment centre in Lunsar which is due to take place tomorrow. It will be a big moment.
I’ll fill in more details tomorrow if I can, but in short this has been what Georgie has been building towards for the last six weeks. It sounds like today has been a tough day – doing dry runs and rehearsing all of the protocols required to keep everyone safe. After a full day, they are still not done – they’ve yet to carry out the practice night shift between 8 and 10pm, GMT. And tomorrow they hope to begin accepting patients.
Georgie is doing OK but, like everyone out there helping, she is exhausted – working flat out seven days a week since she arrived to ensure that everything is ready.
She sent me the above photo yesterday, saying “It all feels very real.”
Think of her, pray for her, send her good vibes – whatever is your scene. And do the same for all the people that she and her colleagues out there are going to be helping.
