Ebola update - statement issued on behalf of the Pooley family
25 August 2014
We would like to express our thanks to all involved in bringing our son back to the UK. We have been astounded by the speed and way which the various international and UK government agencies have worked together to get Will home.
Will is receiving excellent care at the Royal Free Hospital and we could not ask for him to be in a better place.
We would like to thank all our family and friends for their best wishes and ask everyone to remember those in other parts of the world suffering with Ebola who do not have access to the same healthcare facilities as Will.
We would now ask for the media to respect our privacy and that of our friends and neighbours.
