Dr. Nadim Nayyar
Hi, my name is Dr. Nadim Nayyar. I’ve been a Castleford GP for almost 25 years, none of which have been as memorable as 2020. While the pandemic brought the world to its knees, the NHS stood tall in response to the challenge. We were brought to tears by the heroism of our hospital colleagues, our brothers and sisters in Healthcare on the frontline.
In Primary Care, we were actively involved in the COVID response, both in the face of all the damage the virus caused to our patients and their families, and the fear and hesitancy surrounding the vaccine rollout.
Through all this, it costs nothing to smile. If I can make people chuckle and crack a smile then that makes ME smile. So I write parodies chronicling the events of the pandemic: everything from the idiocy of human nature hoarding loo roll, to the fear of being microchipped by a vaccine, to the race to get a jab, Coronavirus is a serious business, and in Healthcare, you’ve got to have a sense of humour to keep motivated. At the same time sending out a message to educate my patients about the importance of social distancing, lockdown, and vaccination.
Simple really, gotta keep smiling!
