Sunday 5 July is the birthday of the NHS and social care system.
2020 has been the most challenging year in NHS history. Those challenges would have been made all but impossible without the help and support of countless individuals and organisations around the country.
On Sunday 5 July, the whole country is invited to come together again at 5pm to applaud all those who have been helping us through the pandemic and recognise the vital community connections that continue to support us all.
On Saturday 4 July, iconic landmarks including the London Eye, Royal Albert Hall, Blackpool Tower and Wembley Arch will be illuminated in blue as part of tributes to key workers and NHS staff.
