The photographs for the NHS tribute collection were taken by celebrity photographer Rankin. The British High Commission in Dhaka published a post on its verified Facebook page in this regard.

“Respect Dr. Farzana Hussain, a British-Bangladeshi General Practitioner, who is one of the NHS staff, portrayed on #London billboards to mark the NHS’ birthday, and to honor the vital role that frontline staff has played during the COVID-19 pandemic,” The British High Commission posted in Facebook.

“It’s wonderful to be part of this campaign and to be photographed by Rankin. Now, more than ever it’s important that we not only recognize the vital role primary care has played in fighting this disease [Covid-19] but to also shine a light on the humanity that makes up our GP practices, community services, and hospitals,” Dr. Farzana said to Newham Recorder.
