We are working with our member NHS Charities on a national campaign that acknowledges and supports NHS staff and volunteers caring for COVID-19 patients. This campaign is endorsed by NHS England.

Details will soon be published with information on how individuals, groups and organisations can get involved with the appeal to help make a difference to NHS patients, through the dedicated frontline workers, during the coronavirus pandemic.

Funds generated will be granted to member NHS Charities supporting the health and emotional wellbeing of those on the front line of the NHS, so they can deliver the best care possible to coronavirus patients.

Ellie Orton, Chief Executive of NHS Charities Together, said: “NHS staff and volunteers are doing amazing work right now in caring for COVID-19 patients and working tirelessly in the face of the virus.

“It’s easy to feel helpless in times like these but this campaign gives us all as individuals, groups and organisations the chance to show we care and to make a difference. Together, we can help those affected by supporting the health and wellbeing of those at the frontline of our NHS.”

NHS Charities Together also calls on the public to follow the NHS and Government’s guidance about keeping yourself and others safe and to support family and friends through social media messaging.
