The first NHS, Social Care & Frontline Workers’ Day is a celebration and recognition of the hard work carried out by essential workers during the pandemic and to remember those who have lost their lives in the service of others.

To celebrate the 73rd Birthday of the NHS and its staff as well as Social Care and Frontline workers, Warwick District Council Chairman Neale Murphy raised a thank you flag in recognition of their dedication and commitment at Leamington Town Hall on Monday 5 July.

The Chairman was accompanied by Anne Coyle, Managing Director of South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust and the Mayor of Royal Leamington Spa, Cllr Susan Rasmussen.

Anne Coyle said: “The pandemic has been an extremely challenging time for many people, but it has also highlighted the amazing people we have among us. I have been humbled by the hard work and compassion from people across our community – all key workers have been instrumental in our response to Covid-19.”

Neale Murphy added, “We would also like to thank the residents of Warwick District for following Covid- 19 guidance on social distance, wearing face masks and hand washing, to keep our frontline workers safe.”
