A senior West Midlands Police (WMP) officer was back at his home after leaving Worcestershire Royal Hospital following him undergoing intensive care treatment (ICT).

Chief Superintendent Phil Dolby fell ill back in March before he was taken to Worcester Royal Hospital in an ambulance after his symptoms began to get increasingly worse.

He said that he had suffered “frightening episodes of breathlessness and dizziness.”

Following 13 days spent on a ventilator, he was discharged and reunited with his family.
In a tweet, Dolby, who is in charge of the force’s criminal justice service, said: that he had received “a lovely send-off” from NHS staff.

He also posted a video showing the surroundings of his isolation ward when he was first admitted to hospital.

Ch. Superintendent Dolby also said that he “cried like a girl” when he was allowed to see visitors through a window.
