NHS, Social Care and Frontline Worker Day

The first NHS, Social Care and Frontline Workers’ day takes place on Monday 5 July on the 73rd birthday of the National Health Service.

Get involved 

In what will become an annual celebration, NHS, Social Care and Frontline Workers is a national day of reflection and opportunity to say thanks to those who continued to work on the frontline during the pandemic.

The day will involve the NHS flags being flown from our town halls in Batley, Cleckheaton, Dewsbury and Huddersfield, a 2 minutes silence for those who have lost their lives to COVID-19 and a toast at 1pm to celebrate the workers who dedicated themselves to helping keep others safe.

Cllr. Nigel Patrick, The Mayor of Kirklees said:

“As we start to believe that life might be returning to normality it is easy to forget the people who continue to work on our behalf to keep us all safe. The dedication and commitment of our frontline services, NHS staff and care providers is something we need to remember and be thankful for.”

There will also be fundraising for NHS Charities Together, which supports 250 hospitals and their charitable trusts, and the National Care Association, representing 1.6 million workers helping those who need additional support.
