The United Kingdom National Health Service (NHS) staff and students have been working tirelessly throughout the pandemic in a multitude of ways, including caring for patients, volunteering their time, or being involved in research and education. People of Asian origin make up 29.7% of the NHS medical workforce1. In recognition of South Asian Heritage Month, we asked our readers to nominate health care workers of South Asian origin who have demonstrated their tenacity, innovation, and excellence in recent months.
