Queen Elizabeth Praises Pinoy Nurses In UK


How do you feel about this story?


Queen Elizabeth II has expressed her heartfelt gratitude to the Filipino nurses working in the National Health Service (NHS) of the United Kingdom for their great contribution to the country’s healthcare sector.

In celebration of the 75th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the United Kingdom and the Philippines, the queen of Britain sent a short message to President Rodrigo Duterte.

The British Embassy in Manila posted, “Our ties of friendship and affection are as important today as 75 years ago. We are fortunate to have many nurses from the Philippines in the National Health Service,” the queen said.

Also, the queen expressed how the Filipino nurses “bring exceptional care and comfort to their patients” especially during the global health crisis that the world is experiencing now.

In closing, Queen Elizabeth is hoping that both the United Kingdom and the Philippines “may all look forward to better times in the future.”

This is not the first time that a member of the Royal British Family has recognized the contributions of Filipino nurses and health care workers, especially during the pandemic.

Last month, Prince Charles also sent a message to celebrate this year’s 75 anniversary of the UK-Philippines diplomatic ties where he expressed his message to the Filipino health workers working in the United Kingdom and called them “wonderfully selfless people”.

The brief video was shared by Daniel Pruce, British Ambassador to the Philippines on Twitter.

In 2019, there are 19,000 Filipino workers in the frontline serving the foreign country’s public health system, a report from the Philippine Embassy in the United Kingdom.
