We hope all our fellow patients are being polite, respectful and appreciative towards all surgery staff. The World Health Organisation says it is normal to feel sad, stressed, confused, scared or angry during a crisis. But it isn't going to help anyone to take it out on our hard-pressed and amazingly committed surgery team.
