Creative writing and gardening | from Western General Hospital, NHS Lothian

With visiting restrictions in place, staff are getting creative to ensure patients are still connected to their loved ones.

Intensive Care Unit staff have written a poem 'We stand together', which is sent to loved ones along with forget-me-not seeds. Staff hope that this will provide comfort and create the feeling of a connection between the ICU patient and their loved ones.
