Saying a big ‘thank you’ to healthcare’s unsung heroes

Saying a big ‘thank you’ to healthcare’s unsung heroes

Article topics: #OurHealthHeroes, Support worker

Skills for Health and the National Skills Academy for Health have launched #OurHealthHeroes to mark the contributions of those who play a vital role in delivering patient care. The campaign celebrates the 798,600 people across the sector who work as healthcare assistants, assistant practitioners, porters, cleaners, caterers, maintenance staff and administrative staff. By encouraging people who have benefitted from support to share their stories and thanks, it is hoped that these staff will feel valued and appreciated as part of the healthcare system.
