Thank you to all NHS staff and volunteers in Portsmouth

On Emergency Services Day (9 September 2021), we want to pay tribute to all of our fantastic emergency services in the city, but in particular we’d like to highlight the hard-working and passionate staff and volunteers we have throughout the NHS in Portsmouth.

Whether you’re a paramedic, call handler, ambulance driver, doctor, GP, nurse, healthcare support worker, midwife, pharmacist, carer, practice manager, community responder, care staff, administrator, or any other role in the NHS – from the bottom of our hearts at Health and Care Portsmouth, we want to say thank you.

Your expertise, skill and dedication have been essential in supporting our city through the most challenging of times, and – alongside other local emergency services in Portsmouth – you are the reason that we can begin our recovery from the pandemic.

We know there is still a long way to go, and know that resources within the NHS continue to be stretched – but we want you to know that your commitment and ongoing support for those living, working and studying in Portsmouth has not gone unnoticed. We are truly grateful for your work.

Thank you, on behalf of everyone involved with Health and Care Portsmouth.
