Our healthcare heroes have the country’s utmost respect, says Health Secretary Steve Barclay

OUR health and care heroes have the country’s utmost respect for the incredible job and devotion they show every day.

Healthcare comes in many different shapes and sizes — from paramedics’ quick thinking saving people’s lives on the spot to the nurses holding patients’ hands through good and bad news.

The Sun’s Who Cares Wins Awards rightly shine a light on the crucial, selfless care they carry out and give us a vital opportunity to express our gratitude.

The NHS is one of our most cherished public services.

We are building a stronger, healthier NHS for the long term, with both record numbers of staff and record funding, to give people the security of knowing it will be there for them when they need it.

It comes as a doctor who saved ­countless lives in Ukraine was ­honoured with a Sun Who Cares Wins award in a jaw-dropping surprise presentation by King Charles.

Dr Freda Newlands, 62, thought she was attending a reception at Dumfries HouseAyrshire, but instead was greeted by His ­Majesty asking: “Is there a Dr Freda in the house?”

He handed her our Best Doctor award on what turned out to be his final day as Prince of Wales.

The Queen died the next day.

A video showing Charles surprising the selfless medic was played at last night’s awards ceremony — which was also the first her children knew of the meeting.
