Coming together to Pause and Reflect

Thursday 22 October 10:50 am 

Staff at the Royal Cornwall Hospitals are inviting health and care colleagues and members of the public across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to join them this Thursday to pause and reflect on the impact the Covid-19 pandemic has had on us all.  Through this virtual event we want to reaffirm our commitment to stand with one another as we head into an uncertain few months and continue to care for our communities.

On the Royal Cornwall, St  Michael’s and West Cornwall hospital sites we are planting trees, unveiling sculptures and benches to mark areas for everyone to use for quiet reflection, now, and in the coming months and years. We also have glass plates crafted by a local artist on the Isles of Scilly, which will be placed in our reception areas. We will be holding yellow hearts up that will come in all shapes and sizes and can be cut out of any paper. If you would like to join us please do so.

You’ll be able to do this via Microsoft Teams, either by webcam or by the camera on your phone or mobile device.

“We hope that colleagues from all sectors of health and care, including community hospitals, GPs and care homes, will come together for this short time and that members of the public will join us too, as we reflect on the effect the pandemic has had across our communities.”

The event will be an open livestream for health and care colleagues, as well as the public.  Those wanting to show their hearts can join the broadcast on MicrosoftTeams via There will also be a live stream of the event for staff and public on YouTube:
