Piers Morgan praises immigrant NHS staff for their service during pandemic

Piers Morgan hopes attitudes towards immigration will change due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The presenter’s comments came as he thanked Filipino NHS staff for their service.

He recalled speaking to a Filipino woman who works for him, who explained that all her friends work for the NHS.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain, Piers said: ‘A lovely Filipino lady who works for me, she was out with her friends on Zoom talking to them and she said all of them are in the NHS. I said what do they all do and she sent me this list.

‘We forget about this extraordinary work force who comes from all round the world to help the NHS.’

‘I think we particularly value them right now,’ his co-host Susanna Reid added.

He then went on to read out the names of the woman’s friends before adding: ‘These are the immigrants currently saving people’s lives and coming here and enriching our country and doing an amazing job.

‘So thank you to all the Filipinos who are here and doing all this amazing work, and to every other immigrant working in the NHS currently.

‘And at the end of this I hope we have a different sentiment, a different feeling about what immigration has done for this country.’

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
