WATCH: Six NHS workers open up about their experiences working on the frontline during the COVID-19 outbreak.

With that in mind, for one of the finalGLAMOUR UNFILTERED videos of the year – our biweekly celebrity chat show hosted by GLAMOUR UK’s Entertainment Director, Josh Smith – we wanted to place a spotlight on our NHS heroes as they have truly become the celebrities of our year.

We met six inspirational heroes from the Central and North West London NHS Foundation, Jessica Bailey, Shantell Naidu, Ciara Moss, Ashima Sharma, Carole Waters and Natasha Harmsworth, all of whom have undertaken great personal sacrifices personally and professionally to keep the NHS going, like so many NHS heroes. Strict COVID-19 social distancing measures were in place to film this video and the interviewer and the guests may seem closer than they were due to the video being altered.

In this video, the six women who all undertook different and varying roles in the pandemic, talk about the impact working on the front line has had on their own mental health and their families, as well as relaying first-hand accounts of treating the virus. What is astounding about these women is that despite the traumas they have seen and faced, they would only actively encourage others to join the NHS.

Jessica Bailey, Shantell Naidu, Ciara Moss, Ashima Sharma, Carole Waters and Natasha Harmsworth-Blyth are in fact supporting the ‘We are the NHS’ campaign which hopes to encourage others to join the NHS.
