Last Friday afternoon the Co-leaders of the New Zealand Nurses Union, Grant Brookes and Keri Nuku, generously gave of their time to talk with me about how nurses and other frontline health workers were coping during this worrying time.
I asked them about how nurses were being treated before the crisis and now…. and what they hoped for once we have put this pandemic behind us.
They ask for all of us to be understanding and kind to each other as the way forward.
