Honouring our NHS and 999 Heroes
We are delighted to unveil the first figure on the Emergency Services Cenotaph. The 8ft statue of an NHS Nurse will represent everybody who has served in the NHS, across the UK.
The unveiling of the NHS statue marks the beginning of a major fundraising campaign to raise the £3.2 million needed to build the UK’s first 999 Cenotaph.
The 999 Cenotaph will be a national symbol of gratitude, sacrifice and remembrance for our NHS and 999 heroes – past and present.
Our NHS and 999 heroes have been there for you. YOU can be there for them. DONATE to the 999 Cenotaph TODAY.
His Royal Highness,
The Duke of Cambridge
“As a society, we owe our wellbeing, and indeed our lives, to the men and women in our emergency services who work tirelessly to protect us in some of the most difficult circumstances. It is only fitting that we should recognise the vital role that they play, and pay tribute to the bravery and dedication of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their communities.”
We will soon be adding a 3D tour of the model so you can see this wonderful design in detail. We can only build the real thing if you donate! All photos are copyright protected and should not be used without seeking our permission.
Additional supporters for the 999 Cenotaph include:
The Prime Minister; First Ministers of Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales; the National Police Chiefs’ Council; National Fire Chiefs’ Council; Association of Ambulance Chief Executives; the Maritime and Coastguard Agency and all Search and Rescue organisations.
THEY’VE BEEN THERE FOR YOU.

The design of the 999 Cenotaph
The Emergency Services Cenotaph includes six figures stood back-to-back wearing the uniform they would wear when responding to a 999 call. They are a police officer, firefighter, paramedic, a maritime officer, a search and rescue worker, a dog to represent service animals, and a recent addition of an NHS nurse in scrubs which we added at the start of this pandemic.
We have sought to make the monument as close to the diversity of the United Kingdom as possible. As such the paramedic is an Asian female and the NHS nurse is a black female.
