Royal Mail has unveiled a number of specially decorated postboxes in support of the NHS as a thank you for their exceptional service across the UK during the coronavirus crisis. The five postboxes are painted in ‘NHS blue’ and say ‘Thank You NHS’.
The special postboxes are located close to a handful of hospitals across the UK in London, Manchester, Edinburgh, Wales and Belfast.
The postboxes were chosen to ensure the representation of all four UK countries and to commemorate the Trafford General Hospital, the birthplace of the NHS, founded by Aneurin “Nye” Bevan in Manchester in July 1948.
“We are showing our support and thanks to the many NHS workers across the UK who are working tirelessly to help those affected by the coronavirus crisis. The special blue postboxes are a small token of our thanks for the exceptional service NHS workers are providing across all four UK nations.”
