NHS 70

Celebrate #NHS70 with your story

THE NHS celebrates its 70th birthday on July 5 – and we’re marking the event with a whole host of activities throughout the year.

We are appealing for you to share your memories of the NHS, which we will publish via our social media channels, on our website or through Sandwell Hospital Radio.  We’re looking for your earliest memory of the NHS, or your recollections of working in a great team, or alongside a colleague who made work a joy.

We’re also looking for any old photographs of the Trust and staff which we can copy for an exhibition, and if you have any medical items from years gone by, that we could display for a short period please let us know.
If you would like to participate by sharing your memories of the NHS then please get in touch with Vy Tran, Senior Communications Officer, through email at  v.tran@nhs.net.

NHS Big 7Tea

The NHS has touched us all and the NHS Big 7Tea is a chance to celebrate and say thank you. Why not hold a tea party in aid of Your Trust Charity.

Get planning and use these posters and accessories to promote your event. If you’d like to join us for the Big 7Tea on or around Thursday, July 5th 2018, please contact us and let us know you will be taking part.

You can invite your friends round for a cuppa, brew up for your family, crack open the staff room tea bags, or commandeer the local village hall.

July 5th was chosen as it is the actual 70th birthday of the NHS but you don’t have to hold your party on that day – if another day in July works better, go for that!

Post-party, please pay in the funds you’ve raised to us promptly so all your hard work can start helping patients, staff and families. Please remember to include your details with anything you post to us, otherwise we won’t know who to thank.
