National Unity in a Time of Crisis
07th Apr 2020
Like the many millions of people who applauded the NHS and all key workers, I am incredibly thankful for and inspired by all NHS staff and what they do for our country, especially in our hour of need at this extremely challenging time. The news last night that our Prime Minister is now in intensive care highlights both how indiscriminate and debilitating this virus is, and the incredible need for both resources and highly trained staff to give everyone their best possible chance of recovery.

By sacrificing our liberties of freedom of movement and socialising, we are helping to protect ourselves, our NHS, and each other. Our NHS is demonstrating on a daily basis how it is there for all of us when we need it most. It is our duty to show our thanks, consideration and care to those staff who are sacrificing so much for our benefit.
