Local residents made and hung a heart-warming sign outside of Reepham and Aylsham Medical Practice.

Hardworking staff going into work at the practice during the Coronavirus outbreak were welcomed yesterday morning by the sign.

Hung outside the practice, the surprise banner read

“Thank you NHS #stayhome #staysafe”

Wendy Dicks, Practice Manager at the surgery said: “It was such a lovely thing for our staff to come into today. We have received lots of gifts and messages of thanks from our patients which mean the world to our staff and really boosts morale at this time. 


Many patients have thanked us for taking their calls and booking appointments and all we really want to say is that we are still here doing our day job. We are here to look after you like we always have done. The messages of support are really appreciated and this morning’s sign brought a tear to several of our eyes as it means so much but we are here to help you so please do call our patient line and visit our website if you need us.”

The sign comes on the day of the weekly #clapforourcarers saw millions of brits stand on their doorstep safely to clap and cheer for the key workers supporting the nation during the Coronavirus outbreak.
