Ipswich High School Prep Students Need Your Covid Patient Story

The renowned, Woolverstone-based school needs your help! Prep School students are looking for recovered Covid-19 patients who received treatment at any East Suffolk & North Essex NHS Foundation Trust hospital. 

As part of their fundraising project, in collaboration with East Suffolk & North Essex NHS Foundation Trust, pupils in the Prep School are currently writing a book about the stories of Covid-19 patients and NHS professionals who are working on the frontline during the Covid-19 pandemic.  

Pupils in Year 5 and Year 6 at Ipswich High School have already interviewed numerous NHS professionals from the NHS Trust. Students have interviewed Consultants from the ICU unit, Matrons from several wards across the NHS Trust, interviewed Nurses, Hostesses and Surgeons. 

The children are now desperately seeking to ‘virtually’ interview individuals who have recovered from the virus. The pupils, who range from ages 9 to 11, will record the stories and experiences of Covd-19 patients in their own words which will be collected, printed and published in an anthology, with the proceeds going to a local charity dedicated to supporting communities who have been badly affected by this crisis.

Stella, a Year 5 pupil said “I think it is really important that Covid-19 patient experiences are remembered so that people can learn and read about them in the future.

Martha added: “We really want to hear about how Covid-19 affected patients and their families and how the NHS cared for them.”

If you are willing to be interviewed by the students at Ipswich High Prep School please email [email protected] with your details and story.
