Chief Nursing Officer, Jane Cummings, thanks staff for their “tireless efforts and commitment” following the attack on London this week.
London’s most recent incident in which seven people were killed and 48 injured saw NHS Doctors and Nurses among the first on scene providing immediate and life saving treatment to the victims.
The Chief Nursing Officer and Sir Bruce Keogh said that the recent attacks in Manchester, on London Bridge and Westminster Bridge made us “see both the worst and the best of humanity”.

“Tried and tested emergency plans were activated, with London Ambulance Service on the scene within six minutes”, “NHS staff across the capital have also volunteered to work extra shifts and through the night to help the emergency response”.
“As the medical director and chief nurse of the NHS in England, we would like to put on record our gratitude and thanks to everyone for their tireless efforts and commitment in what has been a very difficult period,” they went on to say.
