Why this petition matters

Started by John Johnson

During this time of national emergency, our NHS is facing an unprecedented workload from the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our country is on a 'war front' with a microscopic enemy which, currently, only our immune systems can fight.

On a daily basis, the amazing men and women who are serving on the front line of the NHS are risking their own lives in order to save the lives of complete strangers. 

Once the national emergency and COVID-19 pandemic has passed, then we owe it to the NHS to never forget what they did for us; what they tried to do for us. 

Front line staff are moving out of their homes to reduce the risk of their family members getting COVID-19. Each day, they confront a virus which could kill them whilst the rest of us are able to stay at home and 'hide' from the virus.

We must never take the NHS for granted.

And that is what a national 'NHS Day' will strive to ensure.

Any monies raised from such a day will go into providing mental health provisions and aftercare for the frontline NHS & emergency services personnel who, over the coming weeks, will witness some truly tragic sights. 

The heart of the nation is with our NHS and emergency services. But it must always be with them and not just during this national emergency
