A message from NHS Charities Together’s CEO Ellie Orton

Our amazing NHS staff and volunteers are working tirelessly right now to
care for COVID-19 patients. We know they’ve got this! And we want them to know
the country has also got their back.

We are so proud and in awe of NHS staff and volunteers as they work to
save lives. This means staying away from their homes and families and working
day and night to treat as many people that need to be cared for.

We, the Nation, can help! Let’s show our gratitude and respect for the frontline NHS, and together beat this virus.

As NHS staff and volunteers look after COVID-19 patients in their greatest hour of need, we can help take care of the well-being of our NHS people.
