NHS Birthday 2020

Rainbow with NHS written below it

This year 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 day the NHS was founded, the whole country is invited to come together at 5pm and applaud the commitment, courage and sacrifice shown by so many. #ThankYouTogether.

On the eve of the birthday, 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 a collective moment of remembrance and thanks.
