Northfield's Royal Orthopaedic Hospital trust first in the Midlands to sign up to key workers celebration

Harry Leach 10th Feb, 2021

A NHS trust based in Northfield is the first in the Midlands to sign up to a national day celebrating key workers.

The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (ROHNFT) will honour key workers and all those who have lost their lives during the pandemic on July 5.

This date was chosen because it marks the anniversary of the NHS being founded in 1948.

A series of events throughout the day will aim to raise cash for NHS Charities Together which supports 250 hospitals in the UK.

ROHNFT will fly a rainbow flag at 10am to mark the occasion.

Jo Williams, chief executive of the trust, said: “We are delighted to be taking part in such a fantastic and uplifting celebration.

“NHS, Social Care and Frontline Workers’ Day is our opportunity, and rightly so, to celebrate key workers across all areas and shine a light on them after what has been an incredibly difficult year.

“It is also a huge boost to our staff to be able to look forward to a positive, momentous occasion.”

Organisers are hoping that this will become an annual event.

Senior politicians have signed up to support the initiative and it is expected the Prime Minister will lead a two minutes’ silence on the day to remember NHS and care worker staff who have lost their lives.

Participants are being asked to register their involvement at http://www.nhsfrontlineday.org where they can also download a certificate to keep as a permanent reminder of the day.
