A legacy of kindness: film highlights continued efforts of staff during the second surge of Covid-19

A Legacy of Kindness, a film produced by Royal Brompton and Harefield’s communications team, captures the continued efforts being made by staff at Royal Brompton and Harefield hospitals to care for some of the sickest Covid-19 patients.

Through the film, we follow the stories of frontline staff, who speak openly and emotionally about their experiences, the personal sacrifices they have made and the pride they have in the level of care given to patients. From stepping into completely new, unfamiliar roles to help care for critically ill patients, to taking up voluntary work helping staff put on personal protective equipment, staff recall the kindness, courage and resilience that has shown up endlessly in the fight against Covid-19 – and in doing so, promises to leave a legacy of kindness.

Joy Godden, director of nursing and clinical governance said: “The film says so much more about our staff than any report could. It beautifully captures the essence of the type of organisation we are. Covid-19 is still with us but with cases continuing to fall and the vaccine roll-out going well, it is good to reflect on what we have achieved so far.”
