Louise Hampton, who works for Care UK, posted a video on Facebook stating that the COVID call center has been “dead” since the virus first spread in January.
In the recording, Hampton flashes the certificate that NHS (National Health Service) awarded her and sarcastically reads what it says:
“This certificate certifies that Louise Hampton made a difference to patients. NHS COVID-19 Response. THANK YOU.”
She claims the call center has received no calls, and thus the certificate is a load of bollocks (load of shit.)
“We are aware of this video, which we consider to be materially inaccurate in a number of ways, and can confirm that a member of staff is subject to investigation,” a spokesperson for Care UK said.
“We expect all our colleagues and services to support the work of the NHS in giving the public the right information and support during the pandemic. Our call centres were, in fact, exceptionally busy, handling a peak of 400% more calls than usual. Our teams showed huge commitment and dedication in delivering the service, and we have rightly thanked them for the efforts they have made.”
Despite the BBC (and other news outlets) rushing to debunk her claim as a “conspiracy theory,” Hampton has received support from large numbers of people on social media, including many NHS workers.
The BBC has sought to discredit her by alleging she’s a QAnon “conspiracy theorists”; the UK-based news outlet, however, has not attempted to retrieve call logs or other evidence that would refute her claims.
QAnon adherents believe that the U.S. is controlled by a cabal of child sex trafficking, Democratic elites intent on bringing down President Trump. Followers also believe that Dr. Anthony Fauci and other elites have manufactured the coronavirus to sabotage Trump’s presidency. The group has young and old followers from different socioeconomic backgrounds, races, and ethnicities.
