When Jess Duckworth isn't treating patients on the wards she is treating those who need a little calming with her piano playing.

The junior doctor has been playing in Wonford's chapel room to visitors and staff looking for a break from the stresses of the hospital.

Working in a hospital can be stressful at the best of times but this year has been particularly challenging because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Nicknamed "The Piano Doctor", she writes her own compositions of soothing music.
