The NHS Birthday (July 2020)

Southall Medical Centre regularly engages with awareness days and campaigns throughout the year to encourage good health promotion among our patients.

The campaign we are celebrating in the month of July is:

 

The NHS Birthday (July 2020)

 

Join us on our 72nd birthday for the biggest NHS Thank You clap ...

 

On 5 July 2020, it will be 72 years since the NHS and social care system was established.

2020 has been the most challenging year in NHS history. This year, the birthday is an opportunity to recognise, reflect and remember. To recognise the skills, commitment, achievements, compassion and diversity of all our 1.9 million people, across more than 350 different professions.

Over the last few months staff have worked around the clock to tackle coronavirus – caring for the 100,000 patients with COVID-19 who needed specialist hospital treatment and treating countless others besides, redesigning services and creating backup Nightingale hospitals.

None of this would have been possible without the help and support of countless individuals and organisations around the country.

On Sunday 5 July we invite everyone to come together at 5pm to come together and applaud the commitment, courage and sacrifice shown by so many. #ThankYouTogether.

Want to find out more? The Nuffield Trust produced an interactive timeline which charts the evolution of the NHS from its inception in the post-war years through to today.
