Happy 70th Birthday to the NHS

Happy 70th Birthday to the National Health Service.

Since its creation the NHS has transformed the health of our nation based on need rather than ability to pay. The NHS faces many challenges, many of them due to the fact some governments (including the current one) have over its 70 years failed to provide it and its staff with the resources it needs.

But today on its birthday, I want to thank you to all those who have played a part in making the NHS the jewell in the crown of our public services and remains the envy of many other countries around the world.
