NEDDC's praise for health workers

North East Derbyshire District Council leaders have joined together to praise our hardworking health workers, as the nation prepares to mark the very first NHS, Social Care and Frontline Workers’ Day on Monday 5 July.

Together with organisations across the country, the Council will be giving thanks to NHS and frontline staff, and also remembering all those who have lost their lives in the service of others.

As part of the day, a two minutes silence will take place at 11am, which council staff will be taking part in and visitors to our buildings will also be asked to observe.

NEDDC Council Leader, Cllr Alex Dale and Council Chairman, Cllr Martin Thacker MBE, said: “We owe enormous gratitude to everyone working in the NHS, social care and on the frontline, who have kept us safe and made sure essential services keep running, all while battling the invisible enemy that is Covid-19.

“This day is our chance to thank them for everything they do, while remembering all those who have lost their lives while serving others.”

Cllr Thacker will be joining staff at the Royal Hospital, Calow, on 5 July to observe the two minutes silence with frontline NHS workers.

  • NHS, Social Care and Frontline Workers’ Day coincides with the birth of the NHS on 5 July 1948. For the full programme of events and more information, visit nhsfrontlineday.org
