I wasn’t allowed in until it was very quiet. Most of the wards had emptied out. And the irony was, every single hospital I went in to, from end of May, the first question the medical staff asked was ‘where were you at the height of the pandemic? Why weren’t you here mid-April?’ They wanted the press to cover what was going on and what they were going through, how inundated they were. But very few people were granted access.
