A brilliant job here from Bauer Media in the UK who have reserved the front cover of a special issue of GRAZIA magazine to highlight NHS frontline workers.
The title took the unprecedented step of photographing four frontline NHS Workers in NHS car-parks, maintaining social distancing, for four split front covers and images for its editorial feature photographed by Amit Lennon.

Deputy Features editor Anna Silverman interviewed each frontline worker, who revealed their new reality working amid the Coronavirus crisis.
The NHS frontline workers featured are: Dr Janitha Gowribalan, 35, an anaesthetist and intensive care doctor at Whittington Hospital, north London, Dr Rosena Allin-Khan, Labour MP for Tooting, and an A&E doctor, Sarah Blanchard, 27, a paramedic in Essex and Richenda Browne, 29, a senior staff nurse in the emergency department at King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
Bauer say: Like the rest of the nation, everyone working on GRAZIA has been humbled and awe-struck by the way frontline NHS staff have responded to the coronavirus crisis, risking their own lives to help the rest of us. This week’s issue is dedicated to those workers, as a way of saying thanks for their selfless dedication. And, as a small token of appreciation, this issue of GRAZIA is being offered FREE in digital format to all NHS staff.
Hattie Brett, Editor of Grazia commented: “Some extraordinary things are emerging from this crisis. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who stood on my doorstep last week sobbing as my entire street clapped for the carers who are working tirelessly to fight coronavirus. Undoubtedly there are many heroes that have emerged over the last few weeks – from delivery drivers and supermarket workers to teachers keeping classrooms open. But those on the frontline, most exposed to the virus, are the NHS workers. They’re going above and beyond to battle the physical and emotional effects of Covid-19 – risking their own lives to help us all. We owe them all enormous gratitude; and this week’s issue of Grazia is our attempt to say thank you to the NHS and let their workers send a clear message to us all. The cover shoot was like none I’ve ever worked on; shot in a matter of minutes in the car parks of NHS hospitals, maintaining social distancing, before Dr Janitha Gowribalan, Dr Rosena Allin-Khan, paramedic Sarah Blanchard and nurse Richenda Browne went back to their day jobs – saving lives.”
