“I am a year 2 medical student in Lancaster University. I am also an Intensive Care nurse who currently works in the COVID-19 unit of Blackpool Victoria Hospital. I am working one shift a week to help out on the frontline in the midst of this pandemic whilst trying to keep on top of my revision for my medical course. This was a photo of me donning the full PPE right before I entered the “battlefield”. Apprehensive. Adamant. Hopeful.”
