How many NHS claps buy a loaf of bread...

I am the son of a current NHS frontline worker, my mother is a nurse and has been for nearly 45 years. To be honest a lot of my family are either doctors or nurses and have been on the frontline for the past 2 months in the battle against Covid-19 and I couldn't be prouder of them and so when the whole 'Clap for the NHS' and 'Clap for Carers' came about I was clapping so hard on that first night that I actually cut my hand...

Cue the week after I was front and centre once again on my road along with everyone else whooping, smashing pots and pans etc...and then deafening silence. 

The same the following week...the same after that

But then I began to question why I was doing it in the first place...

The NHS don't need to be clapped...they need to be funded, they need to be respected and not treated like an afterthought by the government.

I mean for crying out loud the PM was in intensive care at an NHS funded hospital where he made a recovery and then proceeded to give a speech last night which caused more questions than answers on what will happen next.

I will still respect those who choose to clap for the NHS but it now seems more a social media Tik Tok type of thing now and many have forgotten why it was done in the first place...

I would adhere the way to support the NHS is to STAY AT HOME!!!

Be safe everyone.

I still clap on a Thursday evening but it's not for the NHS anymore, they need more than clapping and public support - a pay rise in line with inflation would be a start. I clap now for my neighbours, we don't know each other but it's been a boost so see them each week - rain or shine to show solidarity and support. I'm hoping to knock on all of their doors when this is over and say Hi.

clapping is redundant and at this point disrespectful. At this point in time these heroes need more money and tangible gratitude. Although people do mean well, its not exactly needed and i for one would tell people to stop if i was in these essential workers positions.

To sensitive of a subject but i will like to say for some, this is the only way we can show appreciation to them for what we do. I know it is not directed towards us but something must be done anyway.

I love the title hahaha, its really important to show our appreciation but as the situation gets worse I almost feel silly to clap every week.

Its a nice gesture but the problems that NHS workers are facing right now and will be facing for the foreseeable future are bigger than a round of applause
