Love in is the air at St Mary’s Hospital, thanks to a special delivery from the Island’s ‘Save Our NHS’ group.

To show some love to the hospital’s staff and thank them for their work the campaign group made its way round the Island and collected signatures for its handmade Valentine’s Day card.

It was presented to employees from across this hospital’s departments this afternoon (Wednesday).

Christine Lightbody came up with the idea, she said:

“The public have all been so happy to sign the card, and it’s basically to say thank you to the staff for all that they do. We’re not fighting the NHS, we’re fighting to save it. So it’s very important to us that people know how much we appreciate the front-line staff are doing for the public.”
