Share your story to mark NHS 70th birthday

29 May 2018

Are you, or do you know someone who is celebrating a 70th birthday on 5 July 2018? Are you expecting a baby on that day? 

Did you, or someone you know work in the NHS when it first began 70 years ago, or have you/they enjoyed a long career (more than 30 years) with the NHS in north east London. 

If you can answer yes to any of the above, NHS Newham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) would like you to join in its local NHS 70 birthday celebrations by getting in touch to share your story. 

Dr Prakash Chandra, a local GP and chair of NHS Newham CCG said: “The NHS turns 70 on 5 July and we’d like to extend the invite to join our local celebrations to the people living and working in our borough. 

“If you have a story to share – a baby due on 5 July, or if you are indeed celebrating your own 70th birthday that day, please get in touch. 

“We’d particularly like to hear from anyone living locally who worked in the NHS 70 years ago, or who during the last 70 years has worked for more than 30 years in the NHS in north east London.”
