The NHS could not have achieved all it has without the skill and dedication of our people. Every single one of you has worked so hard to ensure that our organisation continues to deliver high quality care, and we want to use this opportunity to thank you once again for all that you are doing. Operational pressures, overlaid with elective recovery and the ongoing response to COVID-19, mean supporting our colleagues to stay and stay well is more vital than ever. This NHS Birthday, we want to encourage all colleagues to keep accessing support as and when you need it, to keep yourself safe and well and encourage your colleagues to do so too.
