Staffordshire to join NHS 75th anniversary celebrations

On Wednesday 5th July, the NHS will mark 75 years of service, and people in Staffordshire are being encouraged to join the celebrations.

Founded in 1948, the NHS was the first universal health system in the world, available to all; free at the point of delivery.

To help mark the day in Staffordshire, the historic Shire Hall building in Stafford will be lit up blue. Residents and those working in the NHS are also being invited to share photos of them in their uniforms on social media using #NHS75. The day will also be used to help showcase the best of the NHS and those working in and around the sector.

Julia Jessel, Cabinet Member for Health and Care at Staffordshire County Council said: “This is a great opportunity to not only showcase all the amazing work done by the NHS but also to celebrate those working in or alongside the organisation.

“Our staff work hand in hand with their colleagues in the NHS, whether that’s delivering adult social care or colleagues in our public health teams working to help improve people’s health.

“There’s lots of different ways of getting involved and we’re encouraging as many people as possible to join in. Whether it’s attending events in your local area, sharing stories on social media, volunteering or supporting NHS charities, there will be something for everyone. And remember to share your stories on social media using #NHS75.”
