“Thank you again so much for all your hard work everything that you’re doing - I don’t even know what to say, I just feel really humbled to be talking to you.

She added: “Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

The staff spoke of the pressure of daily 12 and a half hour shifts and the “worry” about away from family while being forced to self-isolate.

They also revealed none of them had been tested for COVID-19 and they all wear masks, aprons and gloves while seeing patients and have to assume each person they has the virus “until proven otherwise”.
