"If the experience of Covid has shown us anything, it’s that people who care for us - in hospitals, homes, wherever care is needed - are people we are lucky to have. If we didn’t acknowledge it before, we certainly do now and we mustn’t stop.
"I’m so pleased to be a part of Care Radio as it celebrates, thanks and shines a light on the difficult, joyful, exhausting, rewarding work of caring.
"It’s great to be working with a superb team of radio people, some of whom were colleagues when I started on the radio at the age of 16, riding my bike from school to the radio station. We have all agreed not to say quite how long ago this was, but between then and now at various times I’ve experienced the precious and wonderful work of the NHS and seen the great work done by people who care. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to celebrate them on Care Radio."
