It is estimated between 1948 – 1973, at least 40,000 Windrush and Commonwealth individuals came to the UK to help build the NHS into the worldwide health system it is today. Indeed it is acknowledged that without their help, the NHS would have collapsed!
To honor their selfless efforts, Community Activist and media personality Nubian Jak has designed a 7ft high 7 ft wide granite statue, and collaborated with Islington Council and The Whittington Hospital Trust for the installation of the monument which honours these outstanding men and women. It will be installed on 5th July, 2021 which marks the 73rd Anniversary of the NHS. The unveiling will be swiftly followed by a book launch compiled by Nubian Jak entitled “Nursing A Nation” on the same day.
Both the statue and the book has been endorsed by Her Majesty the Queen, and the book’s intro includes a letter of support from her. Nubian Jak has long been a champion of ensuring the public is aware of those in the black community who have made an obvious impact on the nation, indeed on the world at large. The Nubian Jak Community Trust is a community organization and the largest diversity plaque and statue scheme in the world.
To this end, some will know and others will now be aware, that the phenomenally talented Nubian Jak is set to release a remix of the track “I Have a Song” which was originally released in 2016 with the Godfather of neo-soul and multi-award-winning singer/songwriter Eric Roberson. The remix includes Nubian Jak and Eric Roberson sharing lead vocals (Nubian Jak also raps on the track) and the track features Britain’s most popular singing outfit, themselves previously scoring a number on the UK charts, the NHS choir.

The song will be released together with a video on Friday 11th June 2021. It is a song of celebration and of hope that the legacy that was started 73 years ago will continue.
