Darren thanks NHS staff and volunteers! #NHS70

The NHS was brought into existence on 5th July 1948 under a Labour government – today marks the NHS’ 70th birthday. On this special occasion, Bristol North West MP,  Darren Jones MP thanked everyone who supports the NHS ensuring to include staff and volunteers from across both health and social care services:

Darren said:

” On behalf of everyone in Bristol North West – today and every day – thank you NHS staff, volunteers, charities and fundraisers. We literally wouldn’t be here without you!”‬

To celebrate #NHS70, CQC has published 70 stories highlighting individuals who have gone ‘over and above’ and made a significant impact on the care people receive across health and social care services.

Importantly, while it’s the NHS that’s celebrating a birthday, these stories include people working alongside NHS services in adult social care who we all know have also played a vital and integral role.

 

This collection of short case studies is part of a series highlighting the work that individuals – from volunteers, to front line staff to senior leaders – have done to deliver great services across acute and mental health NHS trusts, primary care and adult social care.

Darren also praised the fundraising efforts of the Southmead Hospital Charity and will be visiting the volunteers in the coming weeks to see the new patient ambulance unveiled as part of the hospital’s 70th birthday celebrations:

” Whilst the government undermine our health service, privatise by the back door and chip away at funding and our dedicated NHS staff – its these fundraisers, NHS staff and the people who donated in support of this wonderful ambulance that deserve our attention! They are what represents #NHS70 each and every day~.
