NHS Birthday 2020

#Thankyoutogether – Sunday 5th July at 5:00 pm

On Sunday 5th July, the day the NHS was founded, the whole country is invited to come together at 5:00 pm to applaud all those who have been helping us through the pandemic and recognise the vital community connections that continue to support us all.

Everybody will be encouraged to stop what they’re doing and join with others (following social distancing advice of course) in their streets or neighbourhoods to applaud not just the NHS and other key workers but all those who have volunteered or helped keep services and community networks going.

Following the applause, we hope people will enjoy a drink or a cup of tea and reflect with family, friends and neighbours on the bonds that have sustained us in recent months and will continue to do so.
