Intensive care consultant says “controlled chaos” is new normal for medical staff

Published on January 29, 2021 by

The honorary secretary of the Intensive Care Society says many staff are struggling due to the stress of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dr Shondipon Laha says counselling is being offered to medics as the strain of battling to save COVID-19 patients takes its toll on their mental health.

But despite the challenges, he says healthcare workers are doing everything they can to help fulfil patients’ final wishes, with pints of beer or favourite songs for those too ill to pull through.
