She said: "It has been exceptionally difficult and scary for everyone working within the NHS at the moment a lot of things are uncertain but one thing that is certain is the support and care we are all shown from the community.

"We have these posters in our staff well-being room and they really put a smile on our faces each time we sit down for a cuppa and look at them.
