I was redeployed to establish the COVID inpatient ward in NELFT for patients with mental health problems which I ran for a period of 6 weeks.During this period I faced the challenge of not only managing the patients on this ward , but also providing leadership to the clinical team on the ward.I saw the brittle, emotional and the human side of the staff working with me and how all they put this aside with a blink of eye when they cared for the patients. Coming from BAME background, I also was faced with anxieties on the personal front with my wife developing COVID symptoms and then having to self isolate. During this period of uncertainties I derived solace from taking to singing old Bollywood classic songs; something which I had not tried any time in the past.[/p][p][url=https://www.easterneye.biz/asian-doctor-praises-nhs-for-sense-of-belonging/ ]My interview with Eastern Eye Newspaper[/url] [/p][p][url=https://www.facebook.com/NHSNELFT/photos/a.1491120177864139/2268908116752004/?type=3 ]My work on the COVID-19 Frontline[/url] [/p][p][b][u]What am I raising money for?[/u][/b][/p][p][b]The current focus is Recovery of NHS services and improving health and well being of staff[/b]. During the period of this Pandemic our NHS staff have not only shown exceptional courage but also have worked with selfless and tireless dedication in the frontline to get us all out of this situation.Their dedication has been unfazed even when they were faced with personal challenges and also when they have seen some of our brave heroes succumbing to this.However these challenges in the Last 5 months have taken its toll on the health and well being of the NHS staff. Various steps are being taken to to help our trust staff with everything ranging from blues, stress, anxiety and depression.This is important as we are being told that the second wave and winter pressure on NHS is just round the corner when we will be again needing our courageous and dedicated staff to take us all through that period.[/p][p]To help with this cause I am raising funds for [url=https://www.nelft.nhs.uk/health-way-foundation-/][b]Health Way Foundation Charity[/b][/url] which will be used for the various initiatives and supports to improve well being of our NHS staff.Some of the estimated costs for this eg, £100 will fund a day's music therapy/ art therapy/ counselling sessions for group of 15 staff, £50 will fund a Gym membership for a NHS staff for a month etc. So more generous support from you means more staff can be supported.[/p][p][b][u]How am I challenging myself to raise this money?[/u][/b][/p][p]l have never sung before in my life, never believed that I could sing and have not had any formal music training but like most people enjoyed listening to music. During this pandemic period whilst working on the frontline like many other NHS staff, I was faced with brief periods when I felt anxious, despondent, guilty and helpless.In the last 3 months during these periods, I attempted to sing the songs that I always enjoyed listening to and derived solace from it and felt reenergised at work and also at personal front.As part of fund raising leading up to the World Mental health day on the 10th october, I want to challenge myself further by singing, recording and posting10 old classic Bollywood songs over the course of this month and in the process share my positive experience and also to raise money for the charity to fund various initiatives to improve NHS staff wellbeing.I shall bear all the costs for recording the songs and all the proceeds raised will go towards the charity.[/p][p]I appeal to the local communities and local business to support this cause and donate generously so that more staff can access help.Also if you are unable to support financially I would be grateful if you could spread this appeal via your social media connections.[/p][p][b]Hope you enjoy listening to my songs and support my cause![/b][/p][p][img][/img][/p]
