Visit from ‘calming’ police dog for busy hospital staff

24 September, 2021

STAFF at the Whittington Hospital were given a boost with the visit of a cute dog on Wednesday.

Police Dog Dexter makes regular visits as part of well-being sessions for employees working long and stressful shifts.

He also made sure to stop at the office of chief executive Siobhan Harrington, who said he had been “very calming for me”.

Dexter later tweeted: “Absolute privilege Ma’am to lighten up your day.”

The dog has been making a series of visits to hospitals and frontline services during the coronavirus crisis to lift spirits and boost morale of those going through the most stressful periods of their careers.
