What is Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria?
Today (26 April) it is just 70 days to go before the NHS turns 70 on Thursday 5 July 2018. We are counting down to the birthday celebrations by launching an NHS70 area of our website to highlight the ways we are celebrating across Lancashire and South Cumbria and to encourage people to share their positive stories about the last 70 years.
Working with the UCLAN Innovation Lab team on the website development, we have launched with a simple landing page featuring a short animation celebrating the birth of the NHS in 1948 – showing a midwife cycling past a Hospital, Chemist, Opticians and GP surgery to represent the coming together of healthcare professionals under the NHS banner.
Over the next few weeks and months, we will be capturing stories from people across Lancashire and South Cumbria to show the impact the NHS has had over these past 70 years – as well as looking to the future.
We will also be sharing details of NHS70 inspired events in our area and celebrating key moments in our local history.
Visit our new NHS70 section or follow us on Twitter for all the latest #NHS70 news and events in Lancashire and South Cumbria.
