"We've pulled together really well" - Dr Nick Jones

28 August 2020

We recently invited a selection of key workers to Carrow Road to help launch our 2020-21 away kit, and spoke to them about how they've supported the local community over the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nick Jones is a doctor in infectious diseases, and has naturally had to adapt to the current climate in his job. How have you supported the community over the pandemic?

NJ: I've been working on clinical work on wards assessing Covid and non-Covid patients, working in the labs, and co-ordinating testing for staff for COVID-19. Has that presented a lot of different challenges?

NJ: Yeah, it's obviously been a busy time. All the hospitals have had to redesign their pathways, which has caused enormous challenges for everyone, but I feel like we've pulled together really well. We've been really privileged to have something that we can be getting on with to try to help in what we can. So have you been pleased with the response of the community?

NJ: I think it's been a great response. From what I've experienced, it's been a beautiful time of people pulling together and coming together for a common good. It's been tough for everyone - not just people on the front line - but families at home and everyone locked down. We pulled together and that was great to see. How did you react to being invited to the kit shoot at Carrow Road?

NJ: A mixture of surprise and excitement. It's been really fun and a beautiful day all round. The stadium looks glorious in the evening sunlight, so it's been brilliant and really fun. What do you think of the away kit?

NJ: I think it's gorgeous. It's a really nice design and the colours are beautiful. It's actually a really nice fit and that's the best thing I've found. I don't always fit shirts that well, but it's been really nice for me and I can't wait to get it on!
