So we're not out of the woods but things are slowly looking up, what will they do with captain Tom's money ?

And the new nightingale hospitals that cost a fortune and are mostly empty ?

Hopefully not on middle/upper management. That money needs to be spent on actual frontline staff PPE and resources.

Yes and care homes too hopefully

Testing centre near us has closed and moved to a smaller site for lack of traffic.
Really mixed messages on social media - staff desperate for PPE for the site, official message not used enough and moving.

I understand the money has been raised for the NHS Charity and therefore should not be spent on core resources but on extra items.

It doesn't go towards equipment like PPE; it goes to support the wider well being of staff, volunteers and patients (e.g. making sure they have somewhere to sit, eat, drink, park etc).

@PatriciaHolm that's good to hear.

Thanks everyone, this is a really nice thread , I was beginning to worry anything posted in this topic blew up !! It's very reassuring to know what it will go on, just watched the music video too and that looks sure to raise a lot more !
