Online PR News – 08-April-2021 – London – Dr. Salman shahid titled among's the best U.K. Doctors award given by Pulse Magazine during his COVID work.
Dr. Salman Shahid is a Clinical Director at NHS in England. In the last 12 months since COVID started, we have seen him in a series of live sessions and interviews educating people about COVID and its implications.
Black Asian and Minority Ethnicity (BAME) is 4 times more likely to be affected by this virus and its complications.
Both in his NHS and voluntary capacity Dr. Shahid created the awareness among general public focusing on BAME. This group suffers from the virus the most, mainly because of health inequalities, poor health education, and their socio-economic status. These people were also more ignorant towards the safety precautions of COVID putting others at risk. Dr. Shahid right from the beginning made people aware through the right use of social media and what do’s and don’ts should be followed.
He remained positive and promoted a message of hope among British society. He truly followed British ethos to help the wider world population beyond borders. He leads a team of 25 British doctors including cardiologists, Psychiatrists,s and General practitioners who provided free clinical advice to the Asian population internationally projecting a British positive image of Great Britain.
During Christmas time he went door to door knocking on elderly patients who were isolated and lost their partners during COVID. He became Santa in Doctor’s attire to wipe the tearful eyes of these people. His gesture was well respected and he was interviewed by BBC radio.
He continued to work during the rollout of COVID vaccination and did a number of myth buster videos addressing the British Public to increase uptake of vaccination. His journey is ongoing. Doctors and healthcare professionals like him are real heroes. We must respect and join hands with them to make this world safe and loveable for everyone.
