There is a rich and wonderful diversity within the NHS. Many healthcare workers have settled in the United Kingdom to work as nurses, doctors, healthcare assistants, porters, radiographers, caterers, therapists and many other vital roles within our National Health Service. According to the most recent consensus around 192,000 healthcare workers were born outside of the UK, and the NHS is one of the largest overseas employers.
Statistics aside, many great friendships have been formed within hospitals, GP surgeries, clinics, and in the community between people from all over the world who work within the NHS.
We decided to celebrate this wonderful aspect of the NHS by asking people to give us recipes that are not only delicious, but that also tell us a story about them. If you would like to send in a recipe and let us know your story then get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
