Whilst Thursday was a day of great sorrow for our nation, it also saw the arrival of baby Alexander.
I want to say a huge thank you to the doctors, midwives, nurses and other staff from Bassetlaw Hospital and Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust who have provided such wonderful care for my wife and our new born son.
We are fortunate to have such dedicated NHS professionals and a local hospital in Bassetlaw we can truly be proud of. I will continue to sing their praises and champion local healthcare. They work so hard under very challenging circumstances.
I also want to say how proud I am of my wife, an NHS doctor herself, for being so brave and Alexander’s big brother, who has done a great job caring for him and telling him he is his new best friend.
Now, more than ever, we see the importance of family and I consider myself truly blessed, especially with the joy of our latest addition.
