Join us in celebrating 70 years of the NHS
26th April 2018
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.
Celebrating the birth of the NHS
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.
Sharing your stories
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.
