Had a clap?

I also applaud the NHS, in which I did my training and continue to use as a patient.

Now spare a thought for the equally qualified staff in privately owned nursing homes; equally qualified, often more experienced, less well equipped, paid, and publicly respected. Excluded from care staff times in supermarkets.
Equally qualified? Care home staff are not equally qualified with Respiratory specialists.

I think i get your point though. Anyone putting themselves in harms way for the sake of others deserves a pat on the back. I dont remember anyone clapping for us when we went to Afghan but i suppose we were not doing that for the people back home.

The TFL staff still turning up for work in that hellhole of a transport system where thanks to the mayor, sadiq khan cancelling too many services and creating a serious over crowding problem - are guaranteed to be exposed to the virus, much like the NHS staff at this point. They deserve a bit of a clap too if thats what we are doing now.

And let us not forget the postman, still doing his rounds every day and the delivery drivers who are literally keeping us all alive by delivering food to the stores.
 
Had to laugh at this quote.

And BBC Radio 1 DJ Greg James also praised the salute on Twitter.
He wrote: "Oh my God that was properly brilliant wasn't it.
"Also, most brilliantly British thing ever bashing pots and pans.


Errr Greg, back in the 70 and 80's in Belfast it was a very anti British thing to do.
 
We fired the big rocket we had left over from last bonfire night to celebrate the selfless work of the NHS.



Unfortunately it landed on the hospital which is now mostly on fire.

Very strange evening, I went out to put the bins out for tomorrow morning and got a round of applause, weird.

Gawd bless ‘em! Bally heroes. All NHS senior administrators have agreed to waive 10% of their mega bucks for the public good and all of ‘da angels’ are now working for free. FFS.

Excellent shot, sir.

Did it take out the local useless TfL office too?

Ditto. Then I thought it was due to it being recycling week and my empty bottles do tend to fill the truck.
doing my bit for the planet - trying to recycle all available alcohol.
 
I live one mile from the one of the biggest UK hospitals, many health workers near me. Made new years eve sound like a library. Welling up as I did so.

Getting too soft in my old age.
I’ve experienced the odd dusty room in the last couple of weeks with some of the reports and acts I have seen.

I’m out in the sticks; no nurse or doctor would hear my applause.

I confess I feel conflicted that *only* “NHS” staff are to be applauded. Behind those front line clinicians, who, to a man and woman have my endless respect and gratitude, are an army (not sure if pun intended) outside the health care system which facilitates their work. Not looking for an argument, I simply hope that the multi-layered supply lines are also appreciated by the masses.

When my stint as a patient transport and prescription volunteer starts (not allowed out yet apparently), my vehicle will also be loaded with snap, victuals, drinks and other essentials to be donated into messes and staff rooms.
 
A load of cringeworthy, woke filled, facebooking b*llocks.
Me and the wife and kids were out for a walk (our once a day exercise) at 8pm so copped the full force of it.
I didn’t clap, whoop or cheer.
My wife clapped, whooped and cheered like she was is in the audience of a Jerry Springer show.
I told her to get a f*cking grip and stop embarrassing the kids.
As usual she ignored me and carried on.


But then she does work for the frontline NHS in A&E.
