Retired GP broke Covid rules to hug bereaved woman at clinic
Dr Prit Buttar says he was humbled by the social media response after he comforted a bereaved woman.
"This was just under a year ago," he said."I was working in one of the vaccine clinics and one of the reception staff came through and asked if we could fit in somebody who should have come a few days before but had missed her appointment.
"Of course, we said that's fine and when she came in - this was a lady in her late 60s or early 70s, I can't remember the details now - she was so apologetic that she had wasted an appointment and apologised again and again and we reassured her."Read more: BBC News (UK) »

Carrie Johnson admits breaking Covid rules by hugging pal at engagement partyThe Prime Minister's wife, Carrie, admitted a 'momentary lapse of judgement' when she hugged a friend at a time the pair should have stayed two metres apart Laughing at us !!! Wouldn't worry love half or more of Britain did much worse meeting in parks dropping litter everywhere having house and garden party's abusing retail staff sneaking off to their caravans just a few I witnessed .😂 Ban the duo at No. 10.
Well done such a lovely gesture. I’m fine with this The BBC is literally toxic. Hugging a bereaved out of empathy during COVID-19 is both human and courageous. It's a risk worth taking and deserves our forgiveness and understanding. Don't even try to compare multiple parties by the rule makers / breakers to a gesture of human compassion!!
This is such a moving thread arising from this GP's experience. So many people experienced same. I did too. No one who has been through all this could forgive BorisJohnson and his seedy cohorts ConservativeParty It’s called compassion. Another clickbait to distract people's attention.BorisJohnsonMustGo BorisJohnsonResign JohnsonTheCorruptPM

why he decided to breach social distancing regulations. "This was just under a year ago," he said. "I was working in one of the vaccine clinics and one of the reception staff came through and asked if we could fit in somebody who should have come a few days before but had missed her appointment. "Of course, we said that's fine and when she came in - this was a lady in her late 60s or early 70s, I can't remember the details now - she was so apologetic that she had wasted an appointment and apologised again and again and we reassured her." He said they had told the woman someone else would have used the slot she had missed and then she had explained why she had not attended. Image source, Image caption, Dr Buttar was working at a vaccination clinic when he decided to hug the woman "She and her husband had moved to Scotland just immediately before the pandemic broke and as soon as they arrived in Scotland, her husband discovered that he had cancer," said Dr Buttar. "She had cared for him through the first lockdown and through the summer that followed and he had died shortly before her appointment to come to see us. "Because her son lived in England and his wife had Covid, he was unable to come up to be with her." He said that meant she had had to deal with the death of her husband having had little chance to establish a friend network in the area. "This poor woman was very, very much alone," he said. "And I just took the decision that this was an occasion where I was going to break the rules, and I leaned forward and embraced her. "This poor person just dissolved into tears and as she sobbed, she told me that I was the first person who had embraced her since her husband had died." 'Tremendous fortitude' He explained why he had taken to social media to share his experience. "I posted on Twitter about this just to make the point that, you know, ordinary people dealt with their loss and their loneliness with tremendous fortitude and resignation and stoicism and what a contrast to the behaviour of the prime minister and his entourage," he said. Dr Buttar said many people had responded to the story. "Everyone in the thread who said they'd broken the rules had done so in order to help somebody else, not because they wanted to have a party," he said. "The other thread of it was the people who hadn't broken the rules who had watched loved ones die over an iPad and now bitterly regretted that they hadn't taken that moment just to say goodbye to their loved one. "One of the universal comments that I have seen when I've looked at the thread from people is that the gulf between everyday experiences and the behaviour of the prime minister is so vast. "This is not something for which an apology - a promise to do better - will ever suffice." Related Topics
