Inspired by the Covid-19 pandemic, the exhibition will also feature a film created by students from East Norfolk College, using still images of paintings of East Anglian NHS workers by local artists.

There are also works depicting local NHS staff as part of the NHS Heroes project, an initiative started by Devon artist Tom Croft. Two of the participating artists are themselves NHS employees.
