ITV "Clap from our carers" by Uncommon Creative Studio

The NHS clapped for the nation for staying at home during the coronavirus pandemic in an emotional tribute broadcast on ITV.

The two-minute film, which aired on Thursday at 8:02pm, just after the latest #ClapForOurCarers salute, is a twist on the nationwide initiative in which the public shows gratitude to the NHS each Thursday evening by clapping and cheering. In "Clap from our carers", NHS doctors, nurses and care staff on the front line give thanks to people for staying indoors and showing support and love during the crisis. They also remind viewers of the importance of looking after their mental well-being. It is part of ITV’s ongoing mental-wellness campaign, "Britain get talking".
