My latest report for the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire Programme. I gained exclusive access to the St Andrew’s Centre in Broomfield Hospital. It’s the biggest burns unit in Europe where people attacked with acid can receive specialist treatment. I have been following the brave, strong and inspiring Adele Bellis on her journey to recovery after she was attacked with acid in 2014. I also saw the amazing work of the medical professionals behind the scenes, including reconstructive surgery, laser treatment and physiotherapy. Another reminder of how wonderful our NHS is, and how, even in the darkest of times, you can always believe in the future. Adele said to me: “My new scars represent the new, strong me.” I think that says it all.
