COVID 19 related cases

Coronavirus has changed the way many of us live and work. As a consultant anaesthetist, I have been involved in frontline work during the pandemic in the UK. Anaesthetists have cared for the very sickest of patients within the hospital: we have put patients into an induced coma, put them on a ventilator and transferred them to the Intensive Care Unit (“ICU”). We have also been involved, in the throes of the crisis, in the ICU care of these patients. We, and our ICU colleagues, have been involved in the incredibly difficult decisions about who should receive treatment and who we, sadly, do not think will survive. The ethics, practicalities and emotional toll of these decisions cannot be easily or adequately described. I am able to advise about all medicolegal aspects of the impact of coronavirus on healthcare workers and patients and welcome the opportunity to do so.
