The event was attended by several dignitaries, including prime minister Rishi Sunak, leader of the opposition Sir Kier Starmer and mayor Sadiq Khan.

Christine said: “I thank the NHS for its humility! I have worked in the NHS for 23 years and I am prouder, braver and bolder. I salute and thank the NHS volunteers, researchers, administrators, medics, nurses and allied health professionals for the way they improve people’s lives.”

Samuel added: “Thank you to the NHS for saving lives. Reflecting on the experience at Westminster, it was an exciting experience and I am happy to have witnessed this historic occasion.” Joyce was “Grateful for the NHS’s services to humanity.”
