Win a Holiday for Two to Canada for Your Nominated NHS Worker!

In recognition of the incredible work our NHS staff are doing for our country during the COVID-19 outbreak, one lucky NHS worker will win 10 nights in Canada’s beautiful British Columbia, including a 3-night stay at the incredible Farewell Harbour Lodge, one of Canada’s top wildlife lodges.

VIVID Travel in partnership with Farewell Harbour Lodge are offering this trip of a lifetime to one NHS worker and companion. We are asking our Silversurfers community to nominate a special NHS worker in your life who you feel deserves the opportunity to head off on this incredible adventure.

VIVID Travel are an award-winning tour operator, specialising in bespoke holidays. Having worked and lived within their area of expertise, our team of professional and friendly Travel Designers are true regional experts.

Regularly topping the travel charts, it’s no wonder that Canada’s vast, beautiful and infamously welcoming country has proven one of the most popular travel destinations over recent years.

This 10-day, west coast itinerary encompasses those key elements that draw international travellers to Canada year on year. Enjoy incredible wildlife, world class scenery, First Nations history and you’ll also spend some time in beautiful Vancouver. The winner will be spending three nights at the incredible Farewell Harbour Lodge; the ultimate wildlife viewing destination.

The holiday includes return economy flights from a UK airport and:

  • 9 nights’ accommodation
  • Private transfer to hotel on arrival at Vancouver Airport
  • Ferry to Vancouver Island
  • 8 days’ car hire
  • 3 nights/4 days at Farewell Harbour lodge which includes: return high speed water taxi, all meals, snacks, non-alcoholic drinks and wine at dinner, one full day of grizzly bear viewing, one full day of kayaking, marine tour excursion, optional excursion on departure day, evening guide presentations
  • £500 spending money
  • The holiday prize is for 2 people and must be taken during June 2021

The total value of the prize is approximately £10,000!

Vancouver

Starting in Vancouver, you’ll have a full day to explore this vibrant city – rent bikes and cycle around Stanley Park’s seawall; take a water taxi across to Granville Island and indulge in some delicious local produce, then grab dinner in historic Gastown. The drive to Whistler offers a first proper taste of British Columbia’s incredible scenery, travelling north for 2 hours on the Sea to Sky Highway with mountains on your right and Howe Sound on your left. Again, you’ll have a full day to explore – get your hiking boots on and head out into the pristine alpine scenery!

Whistler

Farewell Harbour Lodge

Now it’s time for wildlife fans to get excited!  After taking the ferry crossing onto Vancouver Island, you’ll have a night in Campbell River, known for its fishing and wildlife viewing opportunities, before continuing north for a three-night stay at the stunning Farewell Harbour Lodge. This wilderness lodge is located on the border of the Broughton Archipelago Marine Provincial Park; a protected wildlife area. Farewell Harbour is family owned and operated. You will enjoy exclusive opportunities with first-class naturalist guides to view grizzly bears, whales, dolphins, eagles and much more.  With only 12 cabins, you’ll feel like the only person in the world in this pristine wilderness.

I'd like to nominate my sister Sophie, who is a Staff Nurse on the frontline. She continues to care for her patients day in, day out, when they have no one else with them. She has also had to deal with our mother having bowel cancer during this pandemic and has been caring for her while she is shielding too. She remains upbeat and positive throughout it. In her eyes, she is 'just doing her job' - from where I'm standing, she is a hero.

I nominate Jo Owen, a brilliant and energetic woman with a heart of gold. Not only does she work tirelessly as a paramedic, but she has also created 'Blue Light Babies', a charity group of crafters who make all sorts of soft and cuddly items to help the NHS, from baby blankets and hats, to trauma teddies and outfits for chemo ducks! Jo co-ordinates the whole lot, from cake-eating crafternoons to the distribution of donated goods across the country. An amazing woman!

I nominate Julie Danns - Lead Oxygen Nurse. My 88 year old Mum caught covid-19 and I was caring for her at home. Drs told me to contact them if i had any worries. I knew Julie a few years ago, she put herself out to visit us when she heard, to support me at this incredibly scary time, and to do what she could to make Mum comfortable. She was under no obligation to. She's got Mum breathing normally for the first time in weeks and I can't possibly thank her enough. She puts herself at risk, as do many others, every day to help covid-19 patients through the worst. She is amazing and deserves something wonderful to happen to her.

I nominate my son who works as a Doctor in the NHS in London. He has to be fully equipped with the PPE before he starts work. He has been very lucky not to have caught the Covid -19 and he has been going in to work when there was shortage of staff due to sickness.
He was due to go on holidays next month but it has to be cancelled due to lock down.

I work as a Nurse in a hospital and caught the virus nursing Covid patients. I am so thankful the patients, my colleagues and myself got over it. the I would gladly both nominate both of us it our dream to visit Canada!!!

My stepmum, Debbie. She & my Dad should only just have returned from their dream Canadian cruise which was inevitably cancelled. Instead, having officially retired a couple of years ago but then returning to nursing part-time soon after, she has been at the heart of the community - delivering Covid/PPE/safety training, conducting tests and visiting care homes to provide pain relief to patients, some of whom have Covid. All the while she is having to distance from Dad at home, who is in his early seventies and, therefore, classed as vulnerable. They both deserve a treat and something to look forward to.

My baby was born 5 weeks early and surprised us with an extra chromosome (Down Syndrome), she was quite unwell and Louise did everything she could to keep me positive, she looked after my baby girl when I couldnt be there. She went out of her way to help in anyway she could. My little girl is now 7 months old and is perfect. still a few underlying issues but Louise still keeps in touch. She has been working in ICU with Covid patients and she deserves something so special for everything she has done xx

I’m nominating my daughter and her husband who both work for the NHS full time. Although they have 3 young children they have continued to work as many shifts as possible during corona virus. My daughter has worked on the Covid ward looking after patients who are very ill. A lot of people don’t realise how hot and uncomfortable the full PPE is and to wear this for 12 hour shifts whilst on your feet all the time is gruelling. She has had to deal with awful situations, fully scrub down after a shift before she can go near the children and grab a few hours precious sleep while they are at school. I’m very proud of them both and they massively deserve something special for their hard work and dedication.

She has also been supporting my family to shield by getting us food and prescriptions so no one needs to leave the house. Despite working as a midwife and also helping to support us she has also been doing nightly story time with my daughter Emilia to try to help reduce the emotional impact of isolation to her!

I nominate my amazing mum Linda. She has worked for the NHS for 36 years as of June, providing essential podiatry care and treatment to the elderly, vulnerable, and high risk. She is responsible for ensuring that the Mid Essex clinic has continued to run during the virus outbreak in treating various conditions, pains, sores, and infections that can be life threatening. Even since before the lockdown, my mum has worked tirelessly to ensure the clinic’s high volume of patients are seen to and treated daily. She has come home exhausted, and more recently due to the virus, she has had to endure facial sores from her long hours wearing her protective mask. She is truly deserving of a much needed break for all her hard work during this difficult time.

She is 74 years old and still working full time for the NHS. She works day and nights shifts in the pathology laboratory of our busy local hospital. During the Covid-19 crisis she has worked additional hours over and above her full time role to cover for colleagues who are self isolating or unwell, despite herself falling into the at risk group. She has been testing bloods on patients with Covid-19 which has created additional challenges in order to stay safe.

She has worked for the NHS for an amazing 56 years and shows no signs of stopping! A true NHS hero.

Dr Karia has been working on the frontline as an ICU doctor (anaesthetist) he has had to move away from home in order to reduce the risk of his elderly parents getting infected and has also had to cancel his proposal to his girlfriend of seven years. He spent his birthday alone in April and despite all of this has kept a positive mental attitude and regularly says he is doing what 'anyone' would do and that he is happy he is able to help. His can do attitude whilst he is at risk of getting unwell is amazing and inspiring and so I feel he really deserves a break after all of this.

My friend Angela has had a unsettled time over the past few weeks (as many of us have). Her job role has change, taking on more work on the ward to protect and support her colleagues choosing to work from home or in the office, a few weeks ago she tested positive for C19. She has lived in four different houses over the past few weeks. Having to pack her things in just a few minutes to move into a house to isolate for a week. She is so selfless and didn’t want to bother anyone for food shopping (I convinced her otherwise). After a week she was moved into another house for a few days. She is unable to return to her original lodgings at the moment so has had to move a third time into a brand new house share with 6 strangers! He car broke down while moving (over a bank holiday weekend) and it sounds like an expensive repair. When she returned to work she is working much longer shifts than ever before but I can guarantee despite everything... she will return to work with such care and compassion for her patients giving them, and the NHS her all.

I would like to nominate my sister Arlene, she works in a Doctors surgery and has throughout this whole Pandemic gone above and beyond working long hours and extra shifts to make sure the practice is doing it absolute best to support all its patients. In addition to this she is a carer for an old lady who is housebound, she does all her shopping and delivers medicines to her and makes sure she speaks to her on a daily basis as this lady has no family and is very lonely. We can all see how exhausted she is but she just keeps going as she doesn’t want to let anyone down. She could really do with a holiday.

My sister Trisha is an auxiliary nurse at Malton Hospital in North Yorkshire. She works on the Fitzwilliam Ward who care for older patients. She makes lovely cakes to take to work for staff and patients and is very caring towards them. She works night shifts and has always turned in for her 12 hour shifts to help care for the patients through Covid 19. She deserves this holiday of a lifetime for all she does for others

My Grandson has been staying with us since lockdown as his Mummy is a nurse working in a Covid Assessment unit and his Daddy is care in the community.. My daughter would be most deserving of this as I am sure all NHS will. You will certainly be making someone deserving very happy.

I would like to nominate my husband who is the ambulance service. He actually had Corona virus which he got from a patient who coughed over him, he was extremely ill for nearly a month and lost a stone and a half during this time. He has gone to work as he is a dedicated caring person. This is his first sickness in 23 years and myself and my family love him very much.

Our daughter, Katie, is a Staff Nurse, and volunteered to work on a Covid ward at our local hospital when the pandemic began here in March. She caught the virus herself early on, but was back caring for her patients as soon as she was better, even working extra shifts when other staff members were ill. Katie only qualified last October, but is proving to be a wonderful nurse.

We cannot look after the kids as we are in the lockdown age so it has been more difficult for her with no childcare .She does all this with total dedication and no thought for herself a true hero she is amazing and we are so proud of her having, to work 12 hours in ppe is no joke either. How can you choose from all these wonderfull caring dedicated people they all deserve this .

I’m nominating myself. I am a medical secretary at Southampton General Hospital (although now employed by Portsmouth Hospital Trust but still working at Southampton). I feel we are the forgotten few! We keep the offices manned, speak to patients, try to arrange outpatient clinics for urgent appointments, keep other professionals informed of patients’ healthcare, deal with Consultants, etc on a daily basis who have come from wards/operating theatres, etc. Without “behind the scenes people” a Hospital could not run smoothly.

Lesley has a wonderful disposition, her endeavor to go the extra mile is second to none, regularly working 60+ hours most weeks, with a smile on her face and determination to make a difference. Her "never say die" attitude is always present, her work ethic unquestionable (I have seen her in action only last year when she nursed my gravely ill father back to full health) and if anyone deserves this prize for their contribution to the current Corona-virus pandemic, then it is Lesley. Thank you 🙂

I nominate my son Gareth, who is a Nurse in Warrington & Halton Hospital. He was off duty sick when the Covid-19 began. He immediately went back on duty to help do what he could. He normally works as a Recovery Nurse in the Operating Theatre but
began looking after patients who were suspected of having the virus in the makeshift ward at Warrington Hospital. I think he deserves this holiday for his dedication to duty.

I would like to nominate April Fixter for you holiday. She is a very hard working District Sister Nurse. Who has to to travel from place to place to visit the patients in their homes. Some have been discharged early because the hospitals need the beds. April and her husband were planning a break this year. Just before the COVID-19 Pandemic started, and to be able to work they cancelled it losing most of the money they had paid, and I cannot remember the last time that they both went away on a holiday. They are my friends and have helped me whilst I have been in my 12 week isolation. They are very good friends, and deserve this holiday. I do hope you would choose them as the winners for your competition. Many thanks for your time Paul Daulby.

During the Covid 19 she has worked both in her own Liver ward with very challenging patients but also working in the Covid wards 12 and a half hour shifts on top of an hour and a half commute to and from her home. She has taken extra shifts and always has a smile and time for everyone- including supporting colleagues in this most challenging time. A real star and my hero!

Our daughter-in-law is a part time NHS physiopherapist specialising in helping stroke patients get mobile again. As part of her training some years ago she covered the use of respirators and as Covid started taking its toll she became full time working in the ICU with the most ill patients, giving them their last chance of survival. Despite not all of them recovering she has continued working as hard as she can, at the same helping our son look after their two young daughters, all without showing signs of the pressure she must be under. One thing is sure, at the end of this she will need a good holiday (we will look after the girls!)

My daughter and her partner are both front line paramedics/ECP’s and have put their own lives in danger to treat many Covid19 patients. They’ve lost so many patients to this horrible virus and are drained by the demands of what goes with all this. They so deserve a holiday like this to make up for all the stress and anxiety that goes with the job, especially at this time. It would be such a reward to them both fir saying Thankyou for all that you’ve had to endure.

My oldest daughter is a Staff Nurse on a Covid-19 ward in Bristol. She's recently found she's pregnant and has been moved to a 'clean' area of ICU. I haven't seen her since lockdown as she lives in Wales with her fiancé and I live in Bristol. We keep in touch over Facebook Messenger (text and video calling). My first grandchild is due in November so for my daughter a break with her fiancé next June is impeccable timing.

Luke has continued to work as a hands on nurse manager at a forensic unit with increased responsibilities,ensuring that each staff member is supported as an individual with their own needs and fears ! At the same time, his wife has increased her shifts ,often nights, to cover the staff absence due to covid19. This entails the two children going to school too. Increasing the risk of infection for all of them ,but, great for mental health! A true nursing family!

I would like to nominate my daughter for this holiday in Canada, she is a nurse at Great Ormond Street Hospital and working hard to keep the children in at risk groups safe. She is hoping to still get married in October, but with reduced guests and social distancing. She thinks her honeymoon will be cancelled especially if there is a two week quarantine rule as her holiday is two weeks!
If her honeymoon does go ahead, perhaps she could share this holiday with me as I have just retired after 50 years nursing.

What a wonderful break this trip would be for her and her husbands, who also works very hard to receive. They are also very community spirited and have helped me a great deal since my beloved Husband passed. They are pillars of society working quietly in the background for the greater good. I would love to see them have something for themselves. Fingers crossed.

Although no longer working in an NHS Hospital, Nicole was seconded to one nearly an hour's travel away from home during this Pandemic. About 2 hours travel on top of a long and hard work day.
On arriving home, no matter how exhausted she was, the first thing she had to do every day was to strip off and throw all her clothes into the washing machine.
No matter what Nicole does she always does it wholeheartedly, and with boundless enthusiasm.
My wife and I have given her what little we could afford by way of thanks for her efforts, a bouquet of flowers and a box of chocolates, but If she could win this trip it would be magnificent thanks for her efforts.

Can I nominate myself. I am a cleaner working in Highbury Hospital in Bulwell, Nottingham.
I am not a nurse, or doctor or anyone that has been clinically trained. However, I find myself having to go in and clean affected rooms etc.
I wear masks, gowns and gloves each day and clean the wards.
I work in a mental hospital, so cannot keep to social distancing with the patients.
I have never taken a day of sick in over a year and I can work 20 or more days without a day off.
However, the reason I am asking if I can nominate myself is that, my sister lives in Canada and I would like to go over an give her a much needed big hug.
Our father has just passed away and because of the covid19, she could not come over to my fathers funeral, this broke her heart and I would like to hug her.
Stay safe everyone x x

My nomination is for Jayne Smith and her partner. Jayne had a tough year last year, she had a major heart operation and this year caught what she thinks was Covid 19, it was in February so testing wasn’t available. She works on the front line in A&E and is still covering for ill staff despite her vulnerabilities. Her partner also works in Coding in the NHS and have both spent a frightening few months worrying they may bring the virus home.
They aren’t alone I know but they are my friends and would like to give them an opportunity of a holiday

My wife Louise is in her third and final year of GP training with the NHS in Torbay, Devon. After getting married last summer, we were delighted to found out she was pregnant in March 2020. The excitement was quickly shadowed with concern when COVID-19 struck. Given the choice of continuing to work on the frontline or remaining at home, Louise decided she wanted to continue working to support the nation's efforts. Every Thursday evening at 8pm I get the chance to applaud all our frontline workers, and indeed my own brave wife. A trip to the Canada would be a wonderful way for us to spend some quality time together after both my own job (school teacher) and Louise's NHS role have challenged us physically and emotionally....perhaps even visiting the Canada as a family of three!

My mother in law, second mum, I’m one of her biggest fans!
44 years a nurse and still going strong,
A big heart, listening ear, it’s where she belongs.
This would be a great rest which is truly deserved,
Always under pressure she a pro at holding her nerve.
We love her and appreciate everything she faces,
Canada is on her bucket list, one of the many places.
Thank you to all the hardworking NHS staff,
Because of you all we’re able to live, love and laugh

I nominate Dr Adil Jaulim who has worked tirelessly as a pathology trainee in ensuring specimens and cultures obtained from patients especially with coronavirus are dissected, examined processed and reported in a timely fashion. During his time in the pandemic he has shown resilience when working in the mortuary especially given the large number of deaths and deceased patients that same through to the mortuary for autopsies. This has been mentally challenging at times and has been a difficult task. Additionally Adil helped the bereavement team develop a rapid system to improve work flow during the crisis so that deceased patients could be united with their relatives rapidly. In addition he also helped to set up a safe rest hub for junior doctors working on COVID wards.

He has put his family and spare time on hold to role out thousands laptops for staff to work from home. He may not be a doctor or nurse but there are so many people in the nhs who support the doctors and nurses who are not recognised but without them where would the nhs be

She chose not to be furloughed despite having a 2 year old to take care of and has been adapting to working from home whilst supporting her key worker husband, caring for her daughter, studying and passionately supporting her patients during this difficult time. She would never be able to afford a wonderful holiday like this and to win in the year of her 30th birthday would be amazing and so well deserved!

I’m nominating my son Dr Owen Bain who works in the Cancer Research Dept at The Royal Free Hospital in London. He recently had an operation for testicular cancer which had a negative affect on him physically and mentally. He had only just got engaged.
He still went in to work to release cells which during his PhD aided heart tissue when damaged.
These were taken by Courier to Bristol Infirmary to be given to a 2 month old baby who was born with heart problems.
These cells are temperature sensitive and he stayed in work until he knew that they had arrived and remained at the correct temperature range so the process could go ahead.
He was in pain that day but he still put his job before himself.

I'd love to Nominate Anna Scott. Who works at the George Eliot Hospital, Nuneaton.
Despite having a 2 year old daughter and a fiance who has Crohn's (so is extremely vunerable) she has continued to go to work on the front line. Working mainly on the Respiratory Ward with Covid patients.
Anna and my Son, Mitch, are due to get married this September, so as yet we're unsure whether the wedding will be going ahead. But we know that due to lack of funds they haven't managed to arrange a honeymoon. So a trip to Canada would be absolutely wonderful for them. I'm sure by June next year Anna will be in need of some rest and relaxation after putting her life at risk to care for all of us.
Thank you

I would like to nominate my incredible wife, Chloe, who has had many set backs that have just made an incredible person. As a teenager she had cancer, this resulted in her become a teenage young adult oncology nurse. She has always strived to be the best and in February she was just made team lead for an oncology trials unit in London. Just after her appointment she was hospitalised for a week and a half with severe breathing difficulties that teams couldn’t figure out what was wrong. After being discharged, not one to sit back she started helping by working from home whilst recovering and then went back to the wards as soon as she could to help the fight from the front line. She has now been told that she almost certainly had coronavirus and the road to recovery is going to be a long one. Whilst Chloe is no more deserving than any of the incredible nurses, doctors and healthcare professional fighting on the front line this would be an incredible and very deserved break for her.

Doesn’t matter if she gets the call 1 min before leaving off she’ll go even if she has plans and a place to be. Doesn’t matter what the weather is like if she can get there she will she will and does do everything in her power to help all her patients and team she works with. She is a true angel . This giveaway is amazing and I hope she is lucky enough to win this.

They are all Key workers deserve a chance to be rewarded too.

My wife work as a receptionist on the main outpatients, she often goes above and beyond her role. She gets to know a lot of the patients as they have long term medical conditions and have to have regular appointments. she not only looks after people at work but looks after us her family too, our eldest son had cancer as a child and had to have a liver transplant, she held the family together as I couldn't cope, and always made sure our younger 2 sons were never left out. She is always doing things for other people, which I sometimes get a bit frustrated about , but that is who she is. She recently helped her sister in law sort out a surprise 50th birthday for her brother, to go to niagra falls, she would have loved to have gone with them,but we didn't have the funds to do it, she decorated our garden with waterfalls, mounties, chipmunks,moose etc, and they surprised him with his tickets on his cake,so to surprise her would be great.

My friend, Alison Gunn, is my NHS hero as she's been putting patients first everyday that she goes into work on reception at Kings College Hospital. She puts the cancer patients at ease with her warm and sunny personality and is just the sort of person who makes everyone's day better. She's a caring and fun wife and mum who cycles miles to and from work and she never complains about her long hours. Canada has always been top of her wishlist and I'd love to see such a deserving person win this amazing prize.

Not only is she a full-time nurse and mother to two children, she also cares for our elderly neighbour, Marion, for free. My mum comes home from a long shift and cooks Marion her dinner, gives her house a quick clean and feeds her cat. She also does her weekly shop for her too. My mum is the most kind and caring person ever, who always puts others before herself. Her dream holiday would be to Canada so this would be fantastic!!!

With all the focus on treating the physical illness mental health has been forgotten. I would hope she would go with her daughter Lucy, my goddaughter, who at seventeen has been working in a care home during her time out of college. They are both heroes in my eyes.

I’d like to nominate myself if possible please?

Last month I celebrated 35 years unbroken, continuous service to our NHS. Currently I am working full time in the community as a paediatric nurse - supporting vulnerable children and their carers. I often end up working late, frequently I cover my colleagues shifts if they are unwell and I am always on call.

I am also mother to our four wonderful, clever and creative children, (all home from school, college and university) and a registered carer for my 97 year old uncle, who without our love and support - would not be able to live independently in his own home.
This year my husband and I celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary - all our plans are on hold - but 30 years ago when we got married we had our honeymoon in Canada. At that time I had an alternative nursing placement arranged at The Sick Children’s Hospital in Toronto - and I would work my shift and then we’d sightsee together. Unfortunately, due to finances - we were unable to extend our break and quickly headed home when I had completed my allocated time.

To have the opportunity to return would be a dream come true!

Thank you.

She is a mother of two young children and juggles her career with being at home looking after her family. She is a very industrious and caring individual who does so much quietly in the community to help others and never shouts about it. She and her family would benefit hugely from a holiday after this crisis passes. My thoughts are with all of those working for the NHS and for the carers in our nursing homes.

I can’t wait for her to come home. I’m so very proud of her and all the NHS staff and key workers that put themselves in danger every day.

My sister is an A&E nurse who was one of the first in her hospital to be scheduled in to work on the COVID ward. Her fiancée is also an IT manager for the NHS who previously worked managing bed availability so they called him up to work on the COVID management hospital group at the start of the pandemic. He’s since helped implement technologies in the hospital to allow patients to talk to their families, sometimes as they will never see them again. They also have two children at home so definitely need a life changing break like this once the pandemic has passed.

I would like to nominate my boyfriend Gregory Groome who is a paramedic for the London Ambulance Service. He worked in a quarantine unit for the first month of the pandemic but is now back working day in and day out on the frontline. This year would have been our first holiday, just the two of us, but due to the circumstances we will no longer be going. He works so hard and really deserves a break so I would just love if this is something he could get in return for his hard work!

I am nominating my good friend Sion who is an NHS nurse. Not only has he been working his normal shifts as a cardio and respiratory specialist, but he has been covering staff shortages in other departments, including A&E where he has treated people with symptoms of Covid-19 who have then gone onto test positive for the virus. Due to the increased demands of his job he has seen very little of his partner who is also working on the frontline as a police officer. Therefore, it would be amazing to win this prize for Sion, so that when this is all over, he and his partner can spend some quality time together taking in the sights of stunning Canada.

I nominate Nicola Roberston.

Nicola (Nicki) works incredibly hard and does long hours utilising her skills as a NHS worker with nigh on 30 years nursing experience.

She is full-time Commissioning Manager for the project team that is, currently, constructing the two new hospitals in my area. As well as this role, she also works as a Nurse Manager. As soon as Nicki does her full day's work on the construction project, she changes into her nurse's uniform and goes straight to the wards/control room to do a shift. This happens most days. She was doing this long before the Covid-19 virus hit and is continuing to do so.

Despite the long hours, she always came into work in the project office, next day, with a bright & positive disposition. Her laughter never fails to lift your spirits. I call her our office sunshine girl. She cares very much about her patients, her staff and her colleagues. Nothing is too much trouble for her.

Ali who works in UC in Portslade, Sussex. Is always bubbly, happy, hard working and goes out of her way to do the best that she can do for you. No matter what the situation is and how tired and exhausted she maybe. Ali always puts you first and surprisingly for someone who works in a job centre. You actually look forward to her phone calls. As her upbeat mood is infectious and no matter how low you maybe feeling before her call. Afterwards you are left feeling reassured with a big smile on your face. How many people go to those lengths to always put their client first and no matter, how tired or stressed she maybe. To always put you well fare and care first!

My sister, 60 years old working full time for the NHS for the last 25 years.. She believes she is not worthy as she is only a HCA! I have never met a harder working, more caring person, she listens to the elderly, takes time to explain to patients in pain and comforts those who have had long awaited treatments cancelled. Only a HCA, the lowest paid in the NHS and now being used as a porter, a cleaner, a trainer to newly qualified nurses, a blood taker and a counsellor. Only a HCA at 60 working weekends, 12 hour shifts, bank holidays and coming home to an empty house, shattered. Is there anyone more deserving?

The special NHS worker is my daughter who is a paramedic based in Southampton. Although often exhausted she never complains, is constantly cheerful with a ready smile, juggling motherhood, housework and favours for friends around a complex shift pattern. Her husband is a headteacher who has had to continue to supervise key worker's children throughout the Lockdown and so-called Easter holiday at his school, so Claire had to continue organising family life through this very difficult time. Prior to the Lockdown, Claire managed to take her sons to their activities, including staying to watch club hockey matches in between shifts. She never refuses to help any friend with any request if she can possibly fit it in and I have never heard her moan about some of the call-outs she has had to attend, even though some might be termed 'un-necessary'.
