“In the past year we have cared for more than 200,000 of those most seriously ill with Covid-19 in our hospitals. At the same time NHS staff have also worked incredibly hard to keep essential services such as cancer, mental health, general practice, urgent, emergency and community healthcare running and restore non-urgent services that had to be paused.”
