Get involved with the NHS Birthday

Lots of people came together to get involved in commemorating the birthday of the NHS and social care.

The main activities organised nationally were.

The NHS Big Tea

On Sunday 5 July 2022, the NHS marked 74 years of service. This milestone presented us with opportunities to showcase how the NHS has innovated and adapted to meet the changing needs of each successive generation. As part of celebrations, NHS Charities Together asked NHS Trusts and Charities across the UK to take part in the biggest NHS Big Tea ever. This was the perfect chance for our staff, patients and communities to come together for a moment of thanks after a challenging couple of years. The NHS could not have achieved all it has in the past year without the skill and dedication of our people.
