What We Do

NHS at 70: The Story Of Our Lives is a national programme of work supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund and led by The University of Manchester.

We are recording stories from people who worked and were cared for by the NHS since its creation in 1948.

These stories will be available on our public Digital Archive, which can be accessed by everyone.* The Digital Archive will provide a lasting resource for audiences to discover NHS history through the voices of the people who have worked and were cared for by the NHS since 1948.

Ours, Hers, His, Theirs, Yours?

Whatever your story we would love to hear it. We all have a story to share. Our team are recording stories across the UK now. We just need an hour or so of your time! 

Get in touch now and be part of NHS history.
