Sharing the love for our brilliant NHS

Working on healthcare brands has inevitably brought us closer to our wonderful NHS staff over the years. They’ve been instrumental in helping us understand how to communicate with HCPs and patients, as well as supporting our clients in new product development, clinical case studies and patient education.

We know that many of our health­care friends are cur­rent­ly fac­ing the most chal­leng­ing time of their lives and we want to show our appre­ci­a­tion in every way possible. 

Being part of the Media City com­mu­ni­ty, it was great to see our neigh­bour­hood glow­ing blue as part of the #light­it­blue cam­paign that’s cir­cu­lat­ing on social media and we’re all get­ting involved with #clap­for­car­ers every Thurs­day, which is becom­ing a love­ly week­ly tra­di­tion to get behind our bril­liant key workers. 

This Thurs­day, 16th April, our Media City friends, ITV, are also host­ing an NHS day across their net­work to thank and cel­e­brate the work of our car­ers. The chan­nel is part­ner­ing with NHS char­i­ties to raise mil­lions for the health ser­vice. So, we’ll be cheer­ing them on too. 

We’re also doing our best to try to stay fit and healthy while we’re work­ing from home to make sure no extra pres­sure is put on the NHS. To help you do the same, we’ve put togeth­er some of our top tips for keep­ing your mind and body in great shape dur­ing iso­la­tion – hope it helps!

We’ve been shar­ing our exer­cise snaps from through­out our day as well as some inter­est­ing work-sta­tions and kitchen cre­ations – and to fur­ther our sup­port we’ll be adding a blue heart to spread the love and acknowl­edge the NHS through­out our Insta­gram posts dur­ing this dif­fi­cult time.

We’d love all our fol­low­ers to get involved by includ­ing a blue heart in your Stay Home’ pics. You can get the kids to draw it, down­load one or cre­ate your own. Please add your blue heart to your pho­tos and tag us @thisisthefoundry so we can see them 😊
