We have compiled a video with some messages from just a few of the doctors and healthcare workers working in the NHS here in NI.
In a reflection of the diversity within our community and the NHS we asked them to share what they had to say in different languages. The result – English, Urdu, Punjabi, Arabic and Kannada. Many thanks to Dr Sartaj, Dr Sajida, Dr Sadia, Dr S Khan, Dr Bushra, Dr Usman, Z and Dr Manal for their contribution and to their children, nieces and nephews for the beautiful artwork featured in the video. Thank you to Nermeen Al Shorman and ع for help with Arabic subtitles.
For all the key workers on the frontline. Whether in the NHS, careworkers, shopworkers, postmen, delivery drivers, taxi drivers and others. We thank you. Each one has a story and each one has family they want to protect too.
Please please help them do their job by staying home, only going out for exercise or essentials.
For them, for all of us:
Stay home, save lives and protect the NHS and frontline services.
