Job leadership candidates support Mirror’s medal campaign for NHS workers

Labor leadership candidates demanded that NHS frontline heroic workers be awarded a medal for their role in the fight against coronavirus.

Keir Starmer, Rebecca Long-Bailey and Lisa Nandy support the Mirror campaign to recognize the commitment of doctors, nurses, assistants and paramedics to save lives.

Hundreds of thousands of NHS and social care staff are treating patients affected by Covid-19 – with the public already showing their gratitude by giving them a huge round of applause from the gates of the earth last week.

Starmer, the favorite to be declared Labor leader Saturday, told the Mirror: “I fully support the Mirror campaign. The staff working in our national health service and social care services are national heroes.

“They are at the forefront of the fight against coronavirus and we will owe them a huge debt of gratitude for decades to come.”

Long-Bailey added: “The dedication and altruism of the NHS staff are an inspiration for all of us. They are endangering their lives to save thousands of people and we should do everything we can as a country to make sure they know we all support and appreciate them. They literally deserve a medal. “

A cross group of MPs, led by Lib Dem Layla Moran and David Lammy of Labor, also supported the campaign.

“I fully support the Mirror campaign. The staff working in our national health service and social care services are national heroes. They are at the forefront of the fight against coronavirus and we will owe them a huge debt of gratitude for decades to come.”

Britain stopped last night tonight as we paid tribute to our brilliant NHS caregivers.

Applauding for our companions saw many of us at our house, balcony or window from home while taking a minute to applaud all our extraordinary NHS workers, from catering staff to general practitioners.

And we didn’t just thank the NHS staff. Posties, milkmen and women, delivery drivers, supermarket staff and zero hour caregivers, have all helped keep Britain together during the coronavirus pandemic.

Many of you shared videos of yourself by applauding, while some painted their bodies blue, wore blue accessories and made their social media backgrounds blue.

The official SSN Twitter account tweeted: “It was exciting.”

The royal family was also involved, with Kensington Palace posting an Instagram video of Charlotte, George and Louis, all applauding.

Kensington Royal tweeted: “To all the doctors, nurses, assistants, general practitioners, pharmacists, volunteers and other NHS staff who work tirelessly to help people affected by # COVID19: thank you.”

The queen said that the country is “enormously grateful” for the efforts of all those working in the fields of science, health, emergency and public services, while the royal family has joined Clap’s public performance for Carers.

In the message posted on the royal family’s official Instagram account, the Queen said: “We are hugely grateful for the expertise and commitment of our scientists, doctors and emergency and public services.”

The post contained a video of the Earl and Countess of Wessex and their children Lady Louise Windsor and Viscount Severn, who all applauded after Edward paid tribute to the workers.

He said, “So from all of us a huge thank you to so many of you who work on the front lines – you are really appreciated for continuing the fantastic work.”
