MWF Junior Doctor Prize 2022 - Artistic Entry Winner







Dr Reiltin Tynan

-  Winning Artistic Entry  of the MWF Junior Doctor Prize 2022 'Whole Person Care?'

He will not see the daybreak,

Nor will his kin hold his hand;

But his journey down the river Styx,

Will be watched closely from the land.

His monitors will announce his flight,

The doctor summoned to his side;

His chest will rise and fall one last time

His final heartbeat softly amplified. 

He won’t be held closely, or embraced,

No window opened for his soul to roam;

But the doctor will stay, and certify his death-

And then pause to hear the tears from home.
