An NHS nurse broke down in tears after revealing she has had sleepless nights over if she'll have enough petrol to reach her patients.
Shaz phoned LBC radio from Greenwich urging listeners to stop panic buying fuel, stressing it is a battle to get petrol to see her patients.
"Stop panic buying, because you're putting us at risk," she told Matt Frei.
She told the radio station her husband got up at 2am, went to five petrol stations and couldn't get any fuel to help her reach her patients.
"At two in the morning, my husband went out, because I was sobbing. I didn't know how I was going to get to my patients."
The nurse then broke down into tears and said: "I haven't slept all night, because I was up all until four o'clock in the morning hoping that I would get fuel to see my patients."
She pleading to listeners to "stop being stupid" and urged drivers to stop panic buying to allow key workers to help those who's "lives are at risk".
When asked by Mr Frei if people are being selfish, Shaz said: "They are, absolute greed when they don't even need it.
"Most people are still working from home, so they don't actually need the fuel, but we're out here throughout the whole pandemic.
"I'm absolutely shattered, I have had hardly any sleep, but my patients came first."
