Retaining the Passion: Covid-19 – the Effect on Nursing.

Clare and Craig, both who became newly registered nurses as the Covid-19 pandemic broke, and we entered lockdown in the United Kingdom, catch up and discuss their reasoning for choosing this episode “Covid-19 – the Effect on Nursing. They want to know what the short and long-term effects of Covid-19 will be on individual nurses and the nursing profession, both nationally and globally.

First, they talk with Catherine Gamble, a dually registered adult and mental health nurse and Head of Nursing Education and Research at London Trust. Catherine was also the former Professional lead for Mental Health at the Royal College of Nursing.

Next, they interview registered mental health nurse Vicky Farnsworth and Consultant Clinical Psychologist Dr Clare Jones, who are seconded to the Greater Manchester Resilience Hub. They explain the inception of the hub following the Manchester Arena bombing and how this has been adapted to help healthcare workers and their families throughout the pandemic.

Lastly, Clare and Craig reflect on both interviews and what this all means for the future.
