The NHS is turning 70 on 5 July 2018. It is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the achievements of one of the nation’s most loved institutions, to appreciate the vital role it plays in people’s lives, and to recognise and thank NHS staff – the everyday heroes – who are there to guide, support and care for us.

NHS England has created a short animation which details the achievements of the NHS over the last seven decades.
NHS England and NHS Improvement are working with other partners to mark the occasion at a national, regional and local level.

Why not get involved?
There are lots of things you can do, from organising an event to sharing your NHS story.
More information on how to get involved in the celebrations is available on NHS England’s website.
