Lecturer featured in NHS exhibition
A lecturer from LJMU is featured in a fantastic exhibition celebrating NHS workers in Merseyside.
Dr Colin Jones from the School of Nursing and Allied Health is among the frontline workers honoured for their work during the pandemic at the exhibition at Tate Liverpool.
The piece has been designed by Mexican painter Aliza Nisenbaum and captures the stories of NHS workers and the impact COVID-19 has had on them.
Like other LJMU colleagues, Colin returned to clinical practice to support the NHS in dealing with the pandemic last year. He said: "I was delighted to be chosen to feature in Aliza Nisenbaum's paintings of NHS frontline workers from Liverpool.
"Returning to the NHS as a registered nurse to help during the COVID-19 pandemic has certainly not been without its challenges, but with challenge comes learning and opportunity. I continue to work in clinical practice and am incredibly proud to be part of the NHS family once again.
"Aliza's distinctive style has captured the spirit of all NHS frontline workers and it feels so good to be recognised and acknowledged in this unique way."
You can visit the exhibition at Tate Liverpool until Sunday 5 September.
You can also hear Colin talking about his experiences of returning to the NHS during COVID on 1823 Podcast.
