Voting is now under way in The Sun newspaper’s Who Cares Wins awards, with one of the three finalists being the Intensive Care Unit team from NDHT.

The team was nominated by Kevin and Mandy Mitchell, following Mandy’s treatment in the unit last year for COVID-19.

Mandy, who spent 96 days in the unit, told The Sun: “I have no recollection of the period in the coma, but every day doctors and nurses wrote me notes telling me I was doing great, that I was a fighter and could get better. It means the world to me.”

Mandy, who was NDDH’s first COVID-19 patient, added: “I couldn’t have my family visit, so the medical team became like a family to me.

“I’ll never be able to repay them. They brought me back to my own family but in doing so, they have become family too.”

The NDHT team is up against two other finalists, Ward 3B, Royal Hospital For Children in Glasgow, and Court House Retirement Home in Cheddar, Somerset.

Voting closes at midnight tonight, Friday 6 August
