Happy birthday NHS!

The National Health Service turned 70 on 5 July 2018.

Each and every day, NHS staff work hard to care and support us and today the service has become one of the nation’s best loved institutions.

The NHS at 70 provides an ideal opportunity to celebrate and appreciate the role it plays in our lives and to explore the past as well as look into the future.

We have been speaking to local people who are also celebrating their 70th birthday this year. We’ll be hearing from the people pictured above over the coming weeks about what the NHS has meant to them through their lives.

Watch our patients’ stories marking the NHS's 70th birthday continuing today with Les’s story.
