Dancing Worcestershire Royal doctors praised by Call the Midwife star

Worcester Editorial 31st Jan, 2022   0

DANCING doctors at the Worcestershire Royal have once again gone viral thanks to tweets of Call the Midwife’s Dr Turner and ‘the world’s happiest healthiest news app’.

Dr Baylon Kamalarajan and Emma Maunder kindness in October 2020 towards Worcester cancer patient Izzy Fletcher has been revived thanks to a tweet from Goodable, which shares positive, uplifting stories from around the world.

Dressed in brightly coloured tutus, Dr Kamalarajan and Ms Maunder delighted their young patient who gave instructions throughout.

Their performance of Swan Lake for a delighted Izzy hit the headlines at the time with the youngster and her mum even invited on BBC Breakfast to thank the caring NHS heroes.

And the memories of that performance have been brought back to life after Stephen McGann, who plays the dashing doctor in the hit BBC show, retweeted it to his followers.

Izzy has acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. She first started treatment in 2017 and completed her treatment in May 2019.

However, she relapsed in 2020 and now requires further treatment and chemotherapy.

The actor’s tweet was spotted by Izzy’s mum Vicky who said: “We are very lucky to have such a special team looking after her and we can’t thank them enough.”

Hundreds of followers were inspired to reply and shared many uplifting stories of NHS care for themselves and family members.
