NHS Workers at Aldgate East

Key Workers Living in Aldgate East



In February this year we announced our partnership with YOO Development and Gamuda, and the exciting opportunity that presented itself from the collaboration. Managing three 1-bedroom flats in a residential block on Commercial Road, we are providing these units as an exclusive guardianship for NHS workers, where crucial key workers can live at a significantly reduced rate in Aldgate East.

Our aim is to build a community of kind, hardworking individuals for whom this opportunity will make all the difference. And so, we are therefore delighted to introduce you to our three key workers who are living in this exclusive guardianship.


Aaron, Junior Doctor, Guys and St Thomas’

Meet Aaron, who recently made the decision to move into London to do his part in the Covid-19 crisis. Aaron is currently a junior doctor working at Guys and St Thomas’, but is about to start a placement in ITU at the Royal Free Hospital, so the move to Aldgate East means he will be much closer to his place of work.

“I’m still relatively early in my career, qualifying in 2018 from King’s and working for two years in Cambridge and Bedford. I had initially intended to specialise in Psychiatry, so in the summer of 2020 I started a psychiatric post in Cambridge and Peterborough.

However, as the second wave of the Pandemic picked up, I felt that I could do more good working in acute medicine with Covid-19 patients, so I handed in my notice and took a job in London. I currently work with a team that manages patients too unwell or too frail to be cared for in hospital, going into patients’ homes to start intravenous antibiotics, steroids, fluids and oxygen. I was accepted onto a clinical fellowship at the Royal Free to work in ITU, again hoping to help manage patients who have been hit hardest by Covid-19.

I am still paying the rent of my accommodation in Cambridge, as such, the high rents of traditional properties in Central London would have meant I would be losing money taking on this clinical fellowship. The excellent location and affordable price of this guardianship property relieves me of a significant financial burden and allows me to focus more keenly on my work.”
