The postboxes were chosen to ensure the representation of all four UK countries and to commemorate the Trafford General Hospital, the birthplace of the NHS, founded by Aneurin “Nye” Bevan in Manchester in July 1948. 

Shane O’Riordain, Managing Director of Regulation, Corporate Affairs and Marketing, Royal Mail said: “We are showing our support and thanks to the many NHS workers across the UK who are working tirelessly to help those affected by the coronavirus crisis. The special blue postboxes are a small token of our thanks for the exceptional service NHS workers are providing across all four UK nations.
