The Story of our lives
A national programme of work supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) which aims to preserve NHS heritage and mark its 70th anniversary in 2018 by capturing memories and memorabilia from a diverse range of communities.
These short films have been created by young people who trained as Community Reporters to both share and gather stories about people’s lived experience of the NHS.
All these people have shared their NHS story. These stories and many more will soon be available on our Digital Archive.
