As announced in the Sunday Express today, a memorial to remember the bravery of front-line NHS and care workers in the fight against Covid has received Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock’s backing, and sculptors will now begin the carving process.
The 13ft bronze sculpture will honour all NHS and social care heroes who died in the battle against Covid. It will have every one of their names etched into the stone plinth which the sculpture will stand on.
“This memorial will be a powerful reminder to all of us of the bravery and sacrifice all of our NHS staff and social care workers have made during this global pandemic. I’m proud to be part of this important project and now we would like the great British public to come up with a fitting name for the memorial.”
