The British NHS workers leading the charge against Ebola in Sierra Leone

By Laura Wilshaw: ITV News

Before this camp existed it was just jungle here and all around it was Ebola.

Now it's an organised mass of tents in a clearing, where the British NHS workers are leading the charge to treat the deadly virus.

It is an incredible place. Everyone dressed in medical scrubs and white rubber boots, including us, working in over 30-degree heat.

What's most striking is the spirit of the staff. They are a happy bunch amongst all this sickness. Those we have chatted to are thrilled to be here, want to be here and the condition of their colleague, Pauline Kafferkey, hasn't put them off.

Their hearts are with her but there determination to deal with Ebola is, if anything stronger.

They are all ages, all types. Dan is a renal specialist, Anna is a GP, Rachel is a nurse. There's a paramedic and a professor - all sorts. With them are people from International Medical Corps who run the facility using British money. And an army of local staff.

They say the camaraderie here is special. They support each other as well as the patients. They rotate shifts and the type of work. Sometimes it's overseeing medicines, sometimes it's treating the sick, sometimes it's teaching the Sierra Leonean staff.

But of course it's not easy. Physically and emotionally. Today a five-month-old baby is struggling and a man who died moments after walking into the clinic yesterday was taken by his family for burial.

Five more admissions are coming later. It's an endless cycle but the staff here don't waver.

Next week more will come and the jobs will be handed over, and the cycle will continue.
