Press Release – 03 July 2020

Statement from Luton North MP Sarah Owen on the 72nd Birthday clap for the NHS, taking place on Sunday 5th July

“Happy 72nd Birthday to our NHS!”

“As an MP, today is an opportunity to not just clap again for our NHS workers, but to recommit myself to fighting in Parliament for the pay rise and improved conditions that our NHS workers need after ten long years of their wages being held back.”

“Over the last few months, NHS staff have put their own health on the line to look after so many of our loved ones. These really difficult times have often brought out the best in people. While it is fantastic that the nation’s applause has brought people together, our decision-makers now have a responsibility to repay the hard work of NHS staff with the respect, recognition and reward they deserve.”
