Clatterbridge's health workers praised in Royle message

Some of our most well-known supporters have lent their voices to back NHS staff working in Clatterbridge Health Park during the coronavirus pandemic.

Amongst them is the Merseyside actor Ricky Tomlinson who has dusted off his character Jim Royle to record a special message to be broadcast on Radio Clatterbridge.

The station is carrying messages of support from Wallasey-born TV baker Paul Hollywood, former Liverpool footballer John Barnes, Radio City broadcaster Pete Price and Granada Reports presenter Lucy Meacock.

"I've been a patient there. I know what outstanding work you do. Never has that been more vital. You are without doubt the most important people in the north west." - Lucy Meacock

Despite the current lockdown, Radio Clatterbridge is continuing to broadcast around the clock to patients and staff at the health park.
