Scan back to seven years ago, when we also celebrated our Health Service at the opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics. The spectacle was entitled ‘Isles of Wonder; and was directed by Academy Award-winning British film director Danny Boyle. The choreographed sequence for the NHS was stunningly prophetic of today’s situation with Arenas once again being used as Hospitals and the NHS Nightingale Field Hospital, located at Excel, ironically close to the Olympic Stadium.

All over the World people are literally applauding their Health Services because how else can we show them the thanks that they deserve.

In the UK this takes place each Thursday at 8pm from windows, doorsteps, gardens & balconies. 


The French have La Fete aux Balcons, same time but on Fridays when artists & musicians perform from there isolated places. Check out for the solo guitarist and his haunting version of The Sound of Silence – Simon and Garfunkel.

In Italy people across the country sing their hearts out. Jack Savoretti – “Andrà Tutto Bene” Everything will be alright” giving us hope of brighter days.

Worldwide thanks, cheering, whistling – enough to give anyone goose bumps – take a look even the Royal Family are participating.

So from the team here at UR STAY and the rest of the UK we salute U NHS our heroes!
