Join our George Cross campaign for NHS staff

We urge Sun readers to sign the petition calling for our NHS staff to be awarded George Cross.

We support the proposal by Lord Ashcroft to honor our health heroes with the brave courage given for acts of courage that do not occur in battle.

A spokesman for No10 said: “The NHS is doing a fantastic job and the country will want to find a way to thank us when we have defeated this virus.”

SAS hero Andy McNab added: “The George Cross award will show emotional appreciation.”

We ask our readers to sign the petition below.
