Norfolk and Norwich hospital thanks local community for support during pandemic

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital has thanked all those who've pulled together to support the hospital and its staff during the pandemic.

They say thousands of individuals, companies, charities, community groups, and public sector organisations have come together to support the hospital as it cares for patients and families affected by the virus.

David White, who's the Chairman, said: "On behalf of the Trust, I want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has helped us through this difficult time and pay tribute to the extraordinary levels of support we have received from the wider community across Norfolk and further afield.

"We remain united and resilient with the support of those who were ready to help us tackle the hardest and longest lasting challenge that confronted the NHS in its history."

Professor Nancy Fontaine, who's the Chief Nurse, had this message:

Many of the donations to the hospital were channelled through the Norfolk and Norwich Hospitals Charity which has also received financial donations as well as a wide range of gifts and help in kind.

John-Paul Garside, who leads the charity, said: "On behalf of the charity, I would like to offer my heartfelt thanks for all the donations gratefully received over the last few months.

"We have been amazed by the outstanding support offered to our patients and staff during this difficult period.

"The efforts of the local community and contributions from national donors has been truly inspiring.

"We hope that the community will continue to support us in the forthcoming months as we continue to protect our patients from the virus.

"Many of these donations will continue to benefit our hospitals to enhance the care we deliver in the longer term."
