The most popular tribute is the rainbow of hope with countless variations wishing the NHS and other key workers all the best in the fight against coronavirus.

Northwick Park Hospital has sent out its backing for the public campaign, with a spokesperson saying: “Staff have been touched by the groundswell of public support.

“It lifts peoples’ spirits coming into work to see so many of these messages of support.”

In late March, Northwick Park Hospital staff appeared in a video alongside celebrities to support NHS employees working on the Covid-19 frontline.
