SUPERHEROES were seen visiting a local hospital to pay their respects to the healthcare heroes and their patients.

Members of St John Ambulance who have been lending a helping hand at the Countess of Chester hospital, were surprised to receive a visit from some famous faces whilst on their shifts.

The team of superheroes visited the hospital to say a huge thank you to the staff going above and beyond to save lives and cheer patients up during the challenging times.

St John Ambulance member Mike Williams, who lives in Wrexham, said that the volunteers have been going above and beyond to work alongside NHS staff.

Mike, along with Laura Williams, works on the Discharge Shift at the Countess of Chester, covered by St John Ambulance – helping to care and transport patients to other hospitals, care homes and home addresses.

He told the Leader: “We transport patients with a wide range of care needs and disabilities, including caring for Covid-19 patients.

“Rachel Owens and Kaya Cowhig are on shift doing urgent care work assisting North West Ambulance service get to those patients who need urgent care and transportation to hospitals.

“Both teams are delivering a high level of skills, care and professionalism to patients, being dedicated to their roles and working hard and taking pride in all they do.”

Mike said he is proud to see everyone working together in the fight against coronavirus and the superhero visit certainly boosted morale.

He added: “I feel very proud to work for a company such as St. John Ambulance, and working alongside other fantastic crews, health care and health care professionals It’s amazing to see everyone working together seeing the care and dedication.”
