The NHS is turning 70 on 5 July 2018.
It’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate the achievements of one of the nation’s most loved institutions, to talk about the wide array of opportunities being created by advances in science, technology and information, and to thank the extraordinary NHS staff – the everyday heroes – who are always there to greet, advise and care for, us.
We can all play a role in supporting the NHS in this special birthday year.
This could be by volunteering, raising money for local NHS charities, or by taking steps to look after our own health and use services wisely.
The NHS’s 70th birthday celebrations will start from January 2018 and peak on 5 July.
