On Sunday 5 July the National Health Service celebrated its 72nd birthday. This year has been the toughest year since the launch of the NHS in 1948. We therefore wanted to take this opportunity to wish the NHS a very happy birthday and to say thank you to all the hard-working NHS staff who help to save lives and keep people safe every day.
We asked volunteers to record their own video saying happy birthday and thank you to the NHS. We then collated all of the videos from residents, patients, key workers and anyone else wanting to join in, into one special video, dedicated to the NHS workers across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent. The final collated video premiered on the ‘big day’ and represented the heartfelt appreciation being seen across the city and county. The video can be viewed below.
