The Made in Chelsea Najma said she had “very mixed feelings” about the UK health system, but said: Government Necessary to work to improve the conditions of the nursing staff.
The 32-year-old has suffered from physical and mental health issues since her traumatic childbirth at the end of 2021.
In a lengthy post shared on Instagram, Thompson called the nurses who cared for her during her hospital stay “heroes.”
“They put my body to one side and changed my bed sheets from under my heavy naked body when I couldn’t move. They drugged me. They helped me go to the bathroom,” she revealed.
“They put cream on bed sores (I can’t believe this is actually a thing). They changed my sweaty, tattered sheets several times a day. They fed me, shaved and cleaned me. It was very grim. And yet they did it with such grace and dignity.”
The hospital ward is “a mess”, she added, adding that “the amount of stress they were subjected to was shocking”.
She continued: “The NHS needs more good people. Good people have a huge impact on people’s lives and are the difference between people who feel safe and comfortable and want to keep going versus not wanting to give up.”
“Without good nursing staff, hospitals will collapse. The government better do something about it.”
RCN leader Pat Cullen warned the nurses’ actions would escalate unless ministers were prepared to come around the table and negotiate the dispute over pay and terms.
The TV personality was previously diagnosed with PTSD and has struggled with several health issues since suffering complications during the birth of her son, Leo Hunter.
Thompson appeared Made in ChelseaThe first series in 2011, and has developed into one of the main characters of the E4 programme.
