Elaine King started this petition to The Prime Minister and MPs of the UK

In the current COVID 19 lockdown, many people are expressing their support and deep gratitude for all NHS staff who are giving over and above their job contracts. They are in the frontline fighting for the health and safety of the UK population, against an unseen and not fully known virus, which is attacking us worldwide. People come out and clap or bang pots and pans to express this support each Thursday. 

I underwent serious trauma surgery before Christmas last year  (before the Corona virus announcement and subsequent lockdown) and directly experienced the care and dedication which our NHS give thousands of patients in the normal course of events. I saw how overworked and underpaid these workers were at the time - this has now become magnified intensely in the fight against COVID 19.

Our NHS staff are fighting a deadly and invisible enemy without appropriate safety gear, many working additional shifts. They are not being tested for COVID 19 as a priority and their pay levels are pitiful for the services they provide.

I want the people of this country, who come out onto their doorsteps to clap and bang pots and pans in support of the NHS, to turn that support into something real and tangible . I demand that this Government and any successive Governments commit to raising NHS staff pay and conditions of employment, to truly reflect their commitment and courage. Show our politicians that we want these valued members of society and the workforce to be accorded their true financial worth - they deserve it!  Please sign this petition to show our politicians the level of true support and care we have for our NHS staff.
