Danny Rose:

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you are doing.

“For the hours that you are putting in and, more importantly, for putting yourself at risk to treat everybody.

“I wanted to say, on behalf of all my colleagues, that you are the heroes.

“You are probably not getting as much recognition as you deserve so I just wanted to say thank you very much.

“I have chosen your hospital because I’ve been there a couple of times through Tottenham, so it makes sense to go to you first.

“You are the heroes and the work and the hours you are putting in are not going unnoticed.

“The best thing we can do [to help] is to stay indoors and wash our hands, we can fight this together.”
