Throughout the coronavirus pandemic the CCG has continued to work closely with its NHS partners, local authorities, Healthwatch and the voluntary sector to ensure services can continue safely whilst the NHS is protected, and lives can be saved.
In the video launched on the CCG’s website and social media channels today, 20 members of staff, three children and one dog pay tribute to their front line colleagues and health partners by saying ‘thank you’, accompanied with street signs and rainbows.
Phil Mettam, the CCG’s accountable officer, said: “Our own staff and those of our health partners are all doing an extraordinary job, each facing different pressures, yet still continue to work hard and support people during the coronavirus pandemic. They are amazing and doing themselves and the Vale of York community proud.”
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, most CCG staff are working from home, with others on the supporting the functioning of front line services.
Dr Nigel Wells, the CCG’s clinical chair said: “Everyone has been supporting the national applause on Thursdays at 8pm, and this was an extra ‘thank you’ that staff wanted to do to show their appreciation.”
