GREENOCK nurse Claire Miller was treated to a number of beauty products thanks to ITV’s Lorraine programme, after being nominated by health bosses.
Claire featured on a segment alongside beauty journalist Lisa Potter-Dixon on which she showed a number of products aimed at alleviating dry skin after wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) for hours.
Claire is a senior charge nurse and has been part of Inverclyde Royal Hospital’s critical care team for 21 years. She has worked throughout the pandemic including caring for those who caught covid-19.
NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde was asked to nominate a nurse for the show and nursing director Margaret Mcguire and colleagues took the opportunity to recognise the hard work of staff at Inverclyde Royal Hospital and put forward Claire Miller.
The segment was dedicated to all NHS heroes, as part of the broadcaster’s You Care We Care campaign, highlighting the work of frontline NHS staff during the pandemic and the importance of mental health and wellbeing.
Claire said: “For a large majority of the month, you will find me in PPE so it was great to have the opportunity to try out new products to help my skin.
“It was such a pleasure to be featured on the programme and be able to highlight our local hospital in a light-hearted way during a difficult year. It’s been the most challenging time of our careers.
“We watched it together as a ward and think it help lift our spirits! Thanks to everyone involved for facilitating and for ITV’s Lorraine for thinking of Inverclyde Royal Hospital for this.”
Dr Mcguire said: “We were so pleased to be able to work with ITV on this fun segment and give some well-earned recognition for our staff. We wanted to highlight the nursing team at Inverclyde Royal Hospital for their hard work throughout the pandemic. Thanks to all of our nursing staff for their continued dedication.”
