Celebrating NHS 75

Jul 6, 2023

This week marks 75 years of service for the NHS.

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. According to NHS England, nine in ten people agree that healthcare should be free of charge, more than four in five agree that care should be available to everyone and that the NHS makes them most proud to be British.

The NHS employs staff from all over the world and 350 different careers. For around nine years, the Federation has been supporting the NHS to enable and grow primary care in South Warwickshire. The Federation includes a wide range of roles that work within primary care to support the NHS day-to-day.

Some of these roles include Clinical Pharmacists, Dietitians, and Health Care Assistants to roles who work behind the scenes in teams like Service Delivery, Admin, and IT, each with their own specific responsibilities and functions. Each role is crucial to providing quality care to patients. Whether working directly with patients or behind the scenes, healthcare professionals play a vital role in ensuring the well-being of individuals and the community as a whole.

Thank you to all the NHS staff for all their hard work and dedication. They truly are amazing and deserve recognition for their efforts in keeping us healthy and safe.

To celebrate, we caught up with some of our colleagues to find out what working for the NHS means for them…
