Leading through Covid-19

We spoke to Fatima Khan-Shah, Patient Leader and Partnership Lead for the Unpaid Carers Programme, West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership, about why it's so important to prioritise self care during the Covid-19 (coronavirus) crisis.

The burden of working through a pandemic can lead to a drop in resilience and self confidence. Fatima encourages setting aside time and space to focus on things that restore energy and allow for self reflection.

Another fantastic and inspirational clip King's Fund. I often visit your website because it is always full of topical and encouraging articles and thoughts that lift people. I make a point of sharing clips like Fatimah's because I think she is a gifted and natural communicator who is sharing her lived experience - though your resources you are adding value to all of us.
