The NHS is turning 70 on 5 July 2018. It’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate the achievements of one of the nation’s most loved institutions, to appreciate the vital role the service plays in our lives, and to recognise and thank the extraordinary NHS staff – the everyday heroes – who are there to guide, support and care for us, day in, day out.
We have compiled a factsheet of suggestions of what your station could do to celebrate this milestone and, whatever it is, let us know via social media using the hashtags #NHS70 #NHSScot70 #HBAuk2018 and don't forget to send your pictures to the Editor of On Air.
There will be a range of national and local events to mark this milestone thoughout the year.
