Just a quick post tonight.

It was Julie Donaldson’s funeral yesterday. Julie tragically died on our ICU a fortnight ago after contracting COVID-19. Julie’s husband, John has started a JustGiving page in order to raise money for the Intensive Care Unit. The money will be used to purchase iPads to allow relatives to communicate with their families and loved ones whilst they are being cared for in the ICU.

It’s the Children-in-Need fundraiser tonight. If any of you are already feeling in a charitable mood then I would urge you to support John’s fundraising efforts at:


Many thanks to John and everyone who donates.

Such a brilliant idea. Brother in law died on Wednesday with COVID in RVI and his family were able to chat to him on video, so necessary. Thank you

Brilliant cause! Have donated of course! How wonderful to think of others during a time of grief!


Just realised that you’ve shared the James cook / south tees data on nov 13 & Oct 13!


How devastating to have reported 49 deaths in the last month; an additional 81 covid admissions; 10 more needing critical care than a month ago and sadly 9 more ventilated!


Wish more people would help more locally by abiding by the rules
