Rooftop TV: Episode 5 – NHS pay, healthcare heroes, mental health

The home of good news worth shouting about, The Rooftop, has launched a new weekly broadcast series called Rooftop TV.

Featuring a roundup of the week’s top good news stories, the programme shines a spotlight on the issues that matter and the campaigns that are making a positive difference to people’s lives.

In this week’s show (Episode 5), The Rooftop’s Tom York, speaks to campaigner Shane Longton whose petition to increase NHS pay for healthcare workers has achieved more than 150,000 signatures.

Also in the show, The Rooftop’s Heather Rogers takes a look at a new iPhone app designed to help people look after their mental health and wellbeing during Covid-19.

We also talk about the new social media site, Thank You Healthcare, which has seen millions of people sign up to share personal messages of thanks and support to their healthcare heroes in the NHS and all over the world.

New Rooftop TV episodes air every Friday lunchtime on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram TV.
