Light up blue for NHS75!

To help mark the 75th anniversary of the NHS, we’re encouraging as many buildings, historic monuments and other high profile sites across the country to ‘light up’ blue on the evening of 5 July.

For the NHS’s anniversary two years ago, more than 70 landmarks around the country lit up blue, including Wembley Arch, Liverpool’s Liver building, Blackpool Illuminations Arches, Waterloo Station Clock, Nottingham Castle, the London Eye along with a host of civic centres, hospitals and sports stadiums.

People are encouraged to take photos and share them via social media using the hashtags: #NHS75 and #LightUpBlue.

If you own/run a building or site and want to join in, please email
