That this House celebrates the NHS and care staff who are putting their lives on the line to look after people during the coronavirus pandemic; thanks them for their service and believes that the Government must look after them as well; regrets that many of them are being let down by a lack of proper protective equipment; and calls on the Government to properly recognise their service with a Frontline Support Package of personal protective equipment for all frontline workers; practical help with food deliveries, accommodation and transport; a Frontline Service Reward based on the same principle as the Operational Allowance for Armed Forces personnel; bereavement and funeral support; and a new Coronavirus Service Medal.
