Former chef praises Torbay Hospital frontline staff
A former Torquay chef has praised the NHS frontline staff at Torbay Hospital – and is planning a special thank you.
Terry McGorry, 64, ended up in the accident and emergency department at the height of the pandemic alert locally. A suspected heart attack turned out to be a torn chest muscle.
But Terry, who worked as a chef in hotels in Torquay for over 30 years, said: 'All the time I was there I never heard one of them complain. What an amazing set of human beings. People think they know how hard the NHS staff are working but until you see it with your own eyes you don't.
'God, bless every paramedic, porter nurse, cleaner admin worker and doctor.'
Terry is friends with comedian Steve Laister. They are planning a show at Babbacombe Theatre when the pandemic is over to raise money for the NHS
