Welcome to NHS at 70

NHS at 70 is a national programme of work supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and led by the University of Manchester.

We are collecting stories and memorabilia from people who worked and were cared for by the NHS since its creation in 1948. Marking the anniversary in 2018, NHS at 70 will be collecting stories until 2020.


We are currently recruiting volunteers to collect stories about the NHS from members of the public in and around Glasgow, Liverpool, the North East and Bristol/Bath. Find out more here.

Share your story:

Everybody has a story to tell about the NHS and its unique place in everyday post-war British life. Patient or volunteer? Porter or district nurse? Dentist or surgeon? Cleaner or radiographer? Ambulance driver or receptionist? Whatever your NHS story is we would love to hear it.

All the stories and memorabilia we collect will form part of the first Digital Archive for NHS history. Help us make that history - Contact us by getting in touch and sharing your story!
