Share your NHS stories

TO mark 70 years of the NHS in Scotland, people from this region are being invited to share their stories.

Health Secretary Shona Robison is encouraging people to be part of the NHS 70th anniversary celebrations by telling their memories of health care through the years. She said: “The 70th anniversary of the NHS provides the perfect opportunity to pay tribute to the institution that has done so much for so many. At its heart are the thousands of employees whose skill, dedication and compassion make the NHS what it is, consistently striving for the highest possible standards in clinical excellence and patient care.

“The commitment to the founding principles of healthcare remains as strong today as it was in 1948, yet the service most take for granted has changed considerably over the 70 years, continually adapting and evolving to ensure people’s needs are met. Through investment, innovation and reform, this evolution in the way care is delivered will continue. I’d encourage people show their support for the NHS during its special year by joining the celebrations, and am looking forward to hearing people’s stories of what the NHS has meant to them over the coming weeks.”
