And Keith added: “After talking with those who worked on the front lines, we were very inspired by their courage and dedication. Many of them parted with their families for long weeks, some went to work in retirement, and some took on new responsibilities. And it’s not just the medical staff – all NHS staff played a crucial role during this time. Their hard work is still going on, and we are indebted to them for everything they do. ”
