You are an amazing team, if I may say so, we are very lucky indeed to have you and I hope you continue to have increasing success in battling against this abominable virus, but you are winning by the sound of it and that is the great thing.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Secretary of State mentioned just now that the National Health Service was 72 years old, which happens to coincide exactly with the same age as I am, and the great thing is that the NHS has done a great deal better I can assure you than I have, as I am gradually falling apart. 

If I may say so, it has been such a great joy to have a chance to see some of you today and finding out a little bit about all the extraordinary efforts you have been making, I know, over the last year. It must be absolutely exhausting for so many of you, but I know the NHS is such an enormous team and there are masses of people who are unsung and unseen heroes and heroines. We owe them all such an enormous debt of gratitude and for so many of you particularly, the pressures are huge. It must be so difficult with trying to organise all the other aspects of your lives, let alone the difficulties when you are dealing with people who are very very sick or those who have tragically died. 

You are an amazing team, if I may say so, we are very lucky indeed to have you and I hope you continue to have increasing success in battling against this abominable virus, but you are winning by the sound of it and that is the great thing. So thank you, thank you for everything you do for all of us.
