NHS workers leading the fight against the coronavirus have been given a special thank you on their way to work.

A bilingual “Thank You NHS” message has been painted on the approaches to Ysbyty Glan Clwyd, Bodelwyddan, along with the now familiar rainbow heart symbol.

The work was carried out by Denbighshire County Council, with the help of contractors KTL Contracting, of Llanbedr DC, and L&R Roadlines of Ellesmere Port with no charges incurred.

Cllr Brian Jones, the Council’s Lead Member for Waste, Transport and the Environment, said: “As a council we wanted to thank NHS workers at Glan Clwyd Hospital on behalf of all our residents.

“Frontline workers across the county, in the NHS, social care and those continuing to provide services of all kinds during this pandemic deserve our thanks and appreciation during this time. With this gesture we wanted to show them Denbighshire’s appreciation.

“I’d also like to thank KTL Contracting and L&R Roadlines for carrying out the work for free.”

Ellen Greer, Hospital Director, said: “On behalf of everyone at Glan Clwyd Hospital, I’d like to thank Denbighshire County Council for this kind gesture.

“We’ve seen incredible generosity from the whole community which supports the hospital, from our partner organisations through to members of the public.

“We’re grateful for all of the messages and offers of support we’ve received, and urge everyone to continue to follow the guidance on social distancing to help keep our staff and our patients safe.”
