NHS 70

The National Health Service is turning 70 on 5 July 2018. It’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate the achievements of one of the nation’s most loved institutions, to appreciate the vital role the service plays in our lives, and to recognise and thank the extraordinary NHS staff – the everyday heroes – who are there to guide, support and care for us, day in, day out.

How to get involved?

Well done to our EPUT running team, Nigel Leonard, Isla Sinclair, Adam Whiting, Freya Francis and Obi McKay, who took part in the NHS 70 themed Chelmsford Parkrun, 9 June. In true NHS style the parkrun was a family affair, being joined by Freya’s son and Nigel’s daughter.


Staff can get involved by holding their own NHS Big7Tea event or be involved by donating 1,000 miles.

More suggestions and information can be found on the NHS England website

What we are doing

Proud to work in the NHS

We have been asking our staff to make short video’s of themselves saying why they are proud to be a part of the NHS. Contact the Communications team for more information on how your team could get involved.

Our staff video’s can be viewed on our YouTube channel.
