72nd Anniversary of the NHS 

Posted on:

This weekend, to mark the NHS’s 72nd anniversary, NHS organisations and staff will be taking the opportunity to say ‘thank you’ back to everyone who has supported them so far to respond to the Covid-19 pandemic.

On Sunday 5 July, the day the NHS was founded, the whole country is invited to come together at 5pm and applaud all those who have volunteered or helped keep the NHS and its staff going, and the commitment, courage and sacrifice shown by so many.

During these times of uncertainty across the UK, extraordinary people are making extraordinary things happen. Nationwide, nurses, doctors, carers, GPs and other healthcare and key workers are isolating from family and friends, re-training, re-deploying, volunteering and even coming out of retirement to join the effort to help tackle this pandemic – supported by members of the public who have been volunteering and donating food and other items.
