Knowing that operational services support staff rarely get the recognition they deserve. The aim of One Team Day on 25 November is to celebrate everything that NHS staff have been doing behind the scenes throughout the pandemic.
UNISON head of health Sara Gorton said: “With the events of this past year, healthcare staff across the NHS deserve recognition for their hard work now more than ever.
“The NHS couldn’t run without cleaners, porters, security staff, cooks, medical secretaries and all the staff that are often overlooked when we praise the health service.
“One Team Day recognises and celebrates the vital role that everyone in the health team plays to ensure patients get the care they deserve.”
