"Health and wellbeing has been brought to the forefront of everyone’s minds, and support for the NHS has never been more evident.

 

"The entire workforce, be they doctors, nurses, paramedics or porters – whatever their role – have gone above and beyond to keep people safe, treating COVID-19 and other urgent health conditions.

 

"Today, we also remember NHS colleagues working across all sectors – acute, ambulance, mental health and community – who have sadly died due to COVID-19.

 

"This year the NHS has innovated rapidly, freed up capacity dramatically, and treated record numbers of intensive care patients – all this off the back of a tough and relentless winter.
