Anne Hicks, is an emergency medicine consultant in Plymouth, and for 16 years was the medical director for the British Antarctic Survey (she stepped down last year). The British Antarctic Survey operates all through the antarctic winter - where for 90 days, the sun sets and plunges their base into cold and darkness. So who better to give us some advice on coping with the strict covid-19 rules during our winter period. Anne talks to Cat Chatfield about the ways in which structure, even the seemingly small and arbitrary, can help, how to spot signs of someone struggling, and how the lack of daylight affects teams working at the bottom of the world.
