ITV Daytime celebrates the NHS on Thursday with a dedicated day of programming

Featuring specially themed content across all of the flagship ITV Daytime shows and beyond, ITV NHS Day will kick off at 6am with Piers and Susanna for GMB, handing over to GMB with Lorraine at 9am. Eamonn and Ruth will present This Morning at 10am and the Loose Women will then air a one off special at 12.30pm. Across the day we’ll hear the stories and heartfelt gratitude from survivors of CV-19 and their families.

ITV NHS Day then continues with bespoke content throughout the schedule including the dedicated Clap for our Carers 'pause for applause' at 8pm.

ITV has partnered with NHS Charities Together for the special day as the official broadcast media partner and will appeal to viewers to donate to the NHS and send messages of support to their staff.

Emma Gormley, Managing Director, ITV Daytime said: “Like everyone else in the country we want to say a massive thank you to our NHS heroes. We look forward to a day of extra special programmes in celebration and gratitude for our amazing NHS staff and all they continue to do for us.”

Clare Phillips Director of Social Purpose at ITV said: “This appeal is a vital way of helping people who work for the NHS when they need it the most. We’re delighted to partner with NHS Charities Together and put ITV’s full weight behind a campaign that will give back to the heroic NHS staff. I’m incredibly proud that we've been able to put this together and play our part in helping the NHS in this difficult time.”
