Keep Our NHS Public fully supports the #ClapforCarers and #ClapforNHS initiative now happening regularly every Thursday evening at 8pm.
We welcome the opportunity to show support and solidarity for essential frontline workers. However, we also believe that frontline staff need much more. We're asking people to clap and cheer for the NHS on Thursday evenings but also to print out one of our posters (see below) and put it in your window or hold it when you cheer for the NHS.
We're also encouraging children (big and small!) to MAKE THEIR OWN #ClapForCarers posters and banners too. Download the simple guide here. And while you applaud and bang your pots and pans, please show support by also chanting;
TEST! TEST! TEST!
KEEP KEY WORKERS VIRUS FREE!
