The NHS is turning 70

Join in the birthday celebrations of the NHS

The National Health Service is turning 70 on 5 July 2018.

This is an opportunity to celebrate its achievements and to appreciate the vital role the service plays in all our lives.

Pharmacists have played a core role since the NHS began and there's lots you can do to join in the celebrations. There's also a resources centre with guides and digital branding kits.

A website for the public outlines the history of the NHS and suggests the ways individuals can offer support, including joining in the Big7tea to raise funds for NHS charities.

You can also share stories and the latest from pharmacy on social media using #NHS70. 

The RPS Museum and Library are looking into their archives for objects, documents and images that highlight the history of pharmacy and we'll keep you posted on what they find.
