Support our staff in #OurHealthHeroes campaign

9 Feb 2016 Emily Cope

Skills for Health and the National Skills Academy for Health have started an online campaign to raise awareness of the support workforce to say ‘thank you’ to our unsung healthcare heroes…and we’re joining in!

Did you know that 40% of the 2.1 million people who work in the UK health sector are support workers?

At Bristol Community Health, we are pleased to support this campaign so we can let our staff know how much we appreciate the hard work they do.

For this campaign, members of our staff team took part in sharing their story of what it is like to be a healthcare hero. You can see what they said in the photos below.
