Happy birthday to our beloved NHS

This week is the official 70th anniversary of the NHS on Thursday, 5 July.

To mark this milestone, we have dedicated our latest edition of Community Health magazine to celebrating all that is great about the NHS, looking back at the past 70 years and the changing face of healthcare.

We have also been working on a project to celebrate our colleagues. The inspiring stories of 70 colleagues in our Humans of the NHS campaign have featured on our social media channels – the accompanying booklet can be read here.

Find us on Facebook to like, share and comment on the photos of our fantastic colleagues and get involved with your NHS stories.
