9 February 2022
It’s two years (9 February) since the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust first started admitting patients with COVID-19.
Since then, Royal Free London (RFL) staff have cared for over 7,400 patients with COVID-19 and have given over 54,000 COVID-19 jabs to protect healthcare workers, patients and members of the public at RFL hospital sites.
The Royal Free Charity has also stood shoulder to shoulder with the trust supporting staff, setting up an emergency fund and managing the incredibly generous donations of food and essential items from local communities. They continue to offer long term help, including vital funding for COVID-19 research and staff wellbeing.
To mark the two year milestone RFL staff reflect on their experiences in a series of photos taken during the pandemic. From a mortuary technician, to a Royal Free Charity volunteer, and an infectious disease consultant, the following images feature different voices across the trust and capture just how extraordinary the past two years have been and how resilient the NHS family is.
