The NHS Celebrates Its 70th Birthday

4 Jul 2018 By Octopus Real Estate

2018 is a huge year for the NHS, as our beloved health service celebrates its 70th birthday! Where would we be if it wasn’t for our life-saving doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals? The NHS sits at the heart of the UK, which is why we’re going all out and want to shout from the rooftops about the NHS’ great work. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you, and happy birthday.

NHS 70


It’s great to see how developments in healthcare and wellbeing have changed the way we live our lives. Over the years the NHS has saved countless lives and this wouldn’t have been possible without the dedication and compassion of NHS staff. Over 1.5 million healthcare professionals work for the NHS, from midwives who deliver miracles into the world, to surgeons who help us in our worst moments, we owe everyone a great big thank you for their hard work.

Cheers to many more NHS celebrations.
