Priest describes experiences as chaplain at the London Nightingale NHS hospital

A priest who has spent weeks at the bedside of coronavirus patients at London's Nightingale Hospital has set up a 24-hour chaplaincy system to help tend to the religious needs of the seriously ill and their families.

Father James Mackay, who was raised in east London near where the site of the temporary NHS hospital, said he was compelled to help the moment he heard the ExCel centre was being converted into an overflow health facility in the wake of coronavirus.
