A celebration of medical heroes past and present.

Real people being amazing!

Emily Sharratt is an editor and writer of children's books, such as the Ellie's War series for Scholastic. Emily lives in London with her baby daughter, the highlight of whose week during lockdown was the Thursday night 8pm clap for the carers. Unfortunately she can't tell the time yet so they were usually out on the street with their xylophone and wooden spoons from 7.30 pm onwards.
