We are in the beginning stages of the biggest public health emergency in a generation.

But whilst we wait anxiously for the next update, there are thousands of our fellow citizens working round-the-clock in extraordinary circumstances, on the front line in the battle against COVID-19. 

And with the incredible care and resilience of these absolutely essential members of our society, we know that the country, and its future, is in the best possible hands.

And that’s why we are launching the #OurHealthHeroes campaign, to encourage our supporters and young people across the country to send messages of thanks to all staff working in the NHS.

Because without them, this is a fight we would probably have already lost. 

So, if you have kids, or you know a young person who would like to take part, simply write your message, take a photo and tweet it tagging @hnhcommunity using the hashtag #OurHealthHeroes and let all the staff in the NHS know how much their efforts mean to you.
