Celebrating 70 years of the NHS

The NHS turns 70 on 5 July 2018. Help celebrate the achievements of one of the nation's most loved institutions.

This milestone is the perfect opportunity to join us in celebrating the achievements of one of the nation's most loved institutions, to talk about the wide array of opportunities being created by advances in science, technology and information, and to thank the extraordinary NHS staff - without their skill, dedication and compassion, none of this would be possible.

We are a proud partner of NHS 70, working with other partners across the system, on plans to celebrate the NHS's 70th birthday.

Explore the NHS of the past and future or catch up on the latest news from the NHS 70 celebrations on the NHS 70 website. You will also find ways in which you can get involved in the celebration and support the service, during its 70th anniversary.
