The NHS is turning 70 on 5 July 2018. It’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate the achievements of our amazing organisation and to thank our extraordinary NHS staff – the everyday heroes.
Over the last 70 years, the NHS has transformed the health and wellbeing of the nation and become the envy of the world.
We are all proud of our NHS. It has delivered huge medical advances and improvements to public health, meaning we can all expect to live longer lives.
It is thanks to the NHS that we have all but eradicated diseases such as polio and diphtheria, and pioneered new treatments like the world’s first liver, heart and lung transplant.
A number of events and activities are being planned across the Trust, to make sure we mark the occasion properly!
Keep checking back as details of new events and activities will be added over the coming weeks.
