NHS is 75 Years Old Today

05 July 2023
On this date in 1948, the National Health Service began, so today we are celebrating the momentous occasion of its 75th birthday.  Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust CEO Stacey Hunter said, "Having worked for the NHS for 36 years, I remain exceptionally proud of everything our colleagues deliver for patients. The NHS is all about the people who work in it, who choose to dedicate their time and expertise to support our communities at some of their happiest times, but also in some of their most difficult times. It has been a challenging few years, but despite this, our teams continue to give their best, and every single week people write to me to tell me of the fantastic care and support they have received in our hospital. I wouldn’t want to work anywhere other than in the NHS, upholding the principle of care free at the point of need for everyone, and I look forward to it continuing to thrive for the next 75 years. It is one of the finest institutions in our country."
