Celebrating 70 years of the NHS

The NHS turned 70 on 5 July 2018. The birthday is an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of one of the nation’s most loved institutions and to say a special thank you to the extraordinary NHS staff.

The NHS is the UK’s largest employer, with over 1.5 million staff from all over the world and more than 350 different careers. We spoke to staff around the country about how they got started, and what working for the NHS means to them.
