The children of NHS workers on the frontline in the fight against covid-19 in Norfolk are asking all of us to help keep their parents safe.

The children of NHS workers from across Norfolk and Waveney – dubbed the miniature heroes of the NHS – have been designing their messages which have been posted on social media to emphasise the importance of staying at home to protect the NHS and save lives.

The youngsters, whose parents are nurses, doctors and other healthcare workers, have made heart-warming signs such as “stay home for my mummy” in a plea to people to follow the government’s guidelines.

Dr Siobhan Rowe, senior partner at The Humbleyard Practice, south of Norwich, commented: “We are really appreciative of the people of Norfolk and Waveney following government guidelines and staying at home these last few weeks. 

“This minimises the levels of risk for healthcare workers, who have such an important job to do, but equally have families at home who worry about them.”
