The Oldham Assistant Coach has recovered from Coronavirus

Oldham Assistant Coach Brendan Sheridan has been discharged from hospital after recovering from Coronavirus.

An update posted on the Mid Yorkshire Hospitals Facebook page yesterday read:

“So far we have discharged over 240 Covid-19 patients including Brendan Sheridan, 41 year old Oldham RLFC rugby coach and father of three.

“Brendan spent 2 weeks on Intensive Care (ICU) in an induced coma and on a ventilator to help him breathe, before spending a week on Ward 20 where he made a full recovery.

“During his time on ICU, Brendan’s family and rugby club were updated daily on his condition and with help from the nurses on shift, his family were able to video call him when he woke up.

“Brendan wanted to us to thank all the staff involved in his care on his behalf.

“He said he feels very humbled and grateful towards everyone at Pinderfields Hospital, they have all been fantastic.

“He said it’s the hard work and dedication of all the staff at the trust, it is not just a one man band, it’s a lot of team work that goes in to making sure the system works.

“The effort that goes in to ensuring that patients get the best care is unquestionably amazing – and we couldn’t agree more!

“Thank you to all the staff on ICU, Ward 20 and across the hospital and in the community for everything you are doing to support our patients.”
