The National Health Service is turning 70 on 5 July 2018 which gives us the perfect opportunity to celebrate the achievements of one of the nation’s most loved institutions.

With our nine major hospitals serving the people of Bristol, the South West and the UK, we want to delve deeper into the past 70 years. 

We would love to hear your stories and memories of time you spent in Bristol's hospitals and the care you received. You might want to take this opportunity to say thank you to the staff who cared for you or your family.

If you have a story that you would like to share or staff that you would like to thank, please email us with your story on [email protected]. We'd love to see your photos too!

We’ll be adding NHS70 stories to our website and sharing them across social media as part of our celebrations, so keep an eye out for updates.

We'll also be asking people to host an NHS Big7Tea party or take on a seven, 70 or 700 challenge to fundraise in celebration of NHS70. More information coming soon!
