Radis Community Care celebrated the first ever national day of recognition for NHS, Social Care and Frontline Workers this week.

Monday 5 July saw the launch of the national date which not only marked the day back in 1948 when the National Health Service (NHS) was formed, but was also an opportunity to celebrate the efforts of health, social care and frontline workers to keep essential services running for people during the pandemic.

As part of the celebrations, Care Workers from Worcestershire, Gloucestershire and Herefordshire took part in the two-minute silence at 11am and shared afternoon tea with some of their clients.

Charlotte Hunter, Radis branch manager for Worcestershire, Gloucestershire and Herefordshire said: “I am so incredibly proud of my team, and everyone else at Radis who give so much of themselves to make sure others are well-cared for. The last few months have been incredibly difficult, but we have risen to the challenge and thanks to their efforts and those of the NHS and other frontline workers we’ve made sure that some of the most vulnerable people in our communities continued to receive the support that they needed.”

Radis, which celebrates its 20th anniversary later this year, supports people of all ages and with a range of different needs including the elderly, people with disabilities and complex health conditions to live independently in their own homes.
