Today is NHS, Social Care & Frontline Workers Day. Now more than ever we give our thanks to the hard work and dedication of all those who have worked in unforeseen circumstances during this past year and 4 months.
Throughout this pandemic, many have had to adapt and cope with new, more difficult work environments in order to keep the public safe. It is inspiring to see how those efforts have ensured the safety of others, allowed us to continue providing vital services, and even saved lives. It is also a reminder of what we can do when we pull together, support one another, and work towards the goal of a safer future.
To all our NHS, Social Care & Frontline Workers, we say thank you.
