Social worker is hospital hero

Anthony Francis of Belhar

Tygerberg Hospital social worker Anthony Francis, of Belhar, is this week’s Hero Amongst Us.

The campaign lauds hospital employees inspiring others during the fight against Covid-19.

Mr Francis has worked at Tygerberg Hospital for five years. He says he has had to change the way he does assessments and interviews to protect myself from the virus.

He says he is motivated to add value to the lives of patients and his colleagues.

“Be kind to yourself and one another. Seek information only from trusted sources so that you can take practical steps to prepare your plans and protect yourself and loved ones. Remember to protect yourself and be supportive to others. Assisting others in their time of need can benefit both the person receiving support and the helper.”
