75 years of the NHS

Happy birthday NHS - 75 years

5 July 2023 marks 75 years of the National Health Service.

Treating over a million people a day in England, the NHS touches all of our lives. When it was founded in 1948, the NHS was the first universal health system to be available to all, free at the point of delivery.

This is because, since 1948, the NHS has always evolved and adapted to meet the needs of each successive generation.
