70 years of the NHS

This year, our most treasured institution celebrates its 70th birthday.

The introduction of the NHS completely transformed people’s lives, giving access to world-class healthcare to all, regardless of their ability to pay.

The NHS takes care of people from the first to the last day of their lives. On its 70th birthday, we thank the phenomenal NHS staff who have delivered lifesaving work, even in the toughest times.

These are their stories.
If you love the NHS, join us in wishing the health service a very happy birthday.
