Community hospitals around Dorset are throwing birthday parties this summer to mark 70 years of the NHS.
On Thursday, 5 July it will be seven decades since the foundation of the National Health Service, and Dorset HealthCare will join NHS Trusts across the country in marking the anniversary.
A string of ‘7-Tea’ parties will take place over the next few weeks, and local communities are invited to join in the fun with staff, patients, carers and fundraising Friends groups.
All are welcome to attend – and if you have any old photographs or personal memories of our hospitals, please feel free to share them with staff.
All of Dorset HealthCare’s celebration events are listed on a special NHS 70 webpage, which also features video clips and a selection of vintage photographs. Go to www.dorsethealthcare.nhs.uk/about-us/nhs70
And a new blog has been launched, updated each day throughout July, telling the stories of different nurses across the Trust.
Nurses from inpatient wards, mental health, learning disabilities, sexual health, health visiting, school nursing, minor injuries and midwifery will be talking about what they do and why they love it.
