There’s no distance to travel to reach the next station, The NHS is the health and the heart of our nation.
Opening its doors in 1948, the NHS is one of the oldest and most iconic nationalised health service providers in the world. The NHS has a number of firsts, from the UK’s first heart and liver transplants in the 1960s to the world’s first test tube baby born on 25th July 1978. Britain has been at the forefront of healthcare throughout its existence.
Now, 70 years on, the NHS is something the British population is particularly proud of and you’ll struggle to find a Briton who doesn’t hold the NHS dear to their heart.
