ITV  televised the event which will be aired on Monday 21st May at 8.30pm

The event was attended by members of the royal family, including prince Williams who hailed surgeons as a treasure to the nation.  Camilla Parker was also at the event, and celebrities including Dame Shirley Bassey, Gordon Ramsay, Jamie Oliver, and Sir Tom Jones, all of whom celebrated the winners of 11 awards categories including Mental Health Champions, Emergency Lifesaver, and Hero Volunteer.

The Duke of Cambridge said: “The National Health Service is one of our country’s treasure and something we should be all proud of

“Perhaps the most wonderful thing about the NHS is its people. The skill, care, and dedication they provide every day are truly inspirational.

“I would like to pay tribute to every member of NHS staff and the wonderful volunteers who do so much to support them – we owe you all a huge thank you.”

Also in good spirits was former boxer Frank Bruno, well documented for suffering and overcoming depression in recent years. Bruno wore an all bright red suit but looked worryingly gaunt.

Bruno was humorous, cracking jokes as he sipped a glass of beer. ”It’s good to be here with all the beautiful people appreciating a great job of the NHS.  I have benefited from their great service myself”, he said, as he laughed in his customary fashion.

Bruno was the poster boy for British boxing in the 80’s,  beating former WBA champion Gerrie Coetzee of South Africa, and, in July 1986, before being defeated by Tim Witherspoon in the eleventh round after running out of steam. He eventually lost his big fight to the then sensational Iron Mike Tyson in 1989, but captured the WBC title in 1995 after beating Oliver McCall in 12 rounds. He eventually was stopped in his rematch against Mike Tyson in 1993, getting stopped in three rounds to the former undisputed world champion.

Looking cool, was Tito Jackson, the third brother of the late Michael Jackson. Tito’s celebrity presence added to the spice of the NHS awards event. Tito Jackson was one of the Jackson 5’s  and the Jacksons, who rose to fame in the late 1960s and 1970s with the Motown label. He later pursued recordings as a solo artist on the Epic label in the late1 970s and 1980s. Tito is the third child in the Jackson family.
