A recovered Covid patient experienced an emotional reunion with the team of doctors that saved his life during the early days of the pandemic.

Anwar Chaudhri, was admitted to hospital during the height of the Covid pandemic where he spent 30 days in the hospital at Frimley Park. He was cared for by the intensive care team and spent weeks on a ventilator before being released.

During his visit, to coincide with the fourth anniversary of the first lockdown, he met with Dr Subodh Tote and the team at Frimley Park Hospital.

Patient Anwar Chaudhri said: “After I woke up in ICU, it was just unbelievably positive how Subodh and all his team looked after me. All the nurses and the doctors - it was such good care, I couldn't have asked for more, and this is the reason why I'm standing here today." 

The hospital appeared on ITV Meridian on Thursday, March 21 where Dr Gareth Roberts, the chief of service for medicine, and Dr Tote were also interviewed.

Dr Gareth Roberts treated the first ever Covid patient at the hospital in March 2020.

Frimley Health Trust was reported as being the fourth busiest Trust in the country.

Both doctors spoke about the “unity and fortitude” shown by staff and how it was a “massive collective effort” that got us through the busiest times.
