Shoppers show their appreciation for the NHS
Shoppers in King’s Lynn were asked to share their love for the NHS as part of its 70th birthday celebrations.
Labour and trade union campaigners spoke people about why they have an affinity towards the NHS and asked to sign a birthday card.
The card will be presented to Mavis Homer, the Unison branch secretary at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, who will share it with all the healthcare workers to show the public’s appreciation for them.
Jo Rust, local Labour secretary, said: “Members of the public were incredibly perceptive as they know the value of our NHS. They were quick to sign.
“We made the point that we are not restricted to medical professions of the NHS. All of the workers, porters, caterers, administration staff, are all equally as important but they are not as known for the work they do.”
Eastern Region Labour MEP, Alex Mayer, also attended the event on Saturday.
