North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust - 70 years of the NHS

Home > About us > NHS70



The NHS turned 70 on 5 July 2018. It was the perfect opportunity to celebrate the achievements of one of the nation’s most loved institutions, to appreciate the vital role the service plays in our lives, and to recognise and the extraordinary NHS staff – the everyday heroes – who are there to guide, support and care for patients, day in, day out.
