Celebrating the NHS at 70!
The National Health Service - NHS, celebrates its 70th Birthday today and it’s far from enjoying a quiet retirement! The NHS was created out of the ideal that good healthcare should be available to all, regardless of wealth. When it was launched by the then minister of health, Aneurin Bevan, on July 5 1948, it was based on 3 core principles:
- that it meet the needs of everyone
- that it be free at the point of delivery
- that it be based on clinical need, not ability to pay
