Join NHS Thurrock CCG as we celebrate the NHS’s 70th Birthday.
We will be holding a Bit 7Tea party on 12 July, to mark 70 years since the formation of the NHS. The day will be the perfect opportunity to share your memories of the NHS down the years either as a patient, an NHS worker or both.
Many of us haven’t known a world without the NHS. It’s been there from our birth and provides a helping hand though some of the most difficult periods of our lives. So share the love this July over a cuppa and cake. Everyone is welcome and there’s no need to book a place; just come alone to the Community House, Seabrooke rise, Grays, RM17 6DR on Thursday 12 July from 10am to 12pm.
There will be stands from, community, public health and other NHS providers across Thurrock, with an opportunity to test your health and find out how you can get involved in shaping your local health services.
Over the last 70 years, the NHS has transformed the health and wellbeing of the nation. It has evolved to meet our needs but has always stayed true to its founding principle of free high quality health care for all.
Looking to the future, the NHS is becoming more integrated with social care, community and mental health and investing in new medicines, genetic research and digital technologies like apps and artificial intelligence, which will ensure we continue to live longer and healthier lives.
