Save the date...Happy 70th Birthday NHS

 

With the NHS turning 70 on Thursday 5 July 2018 we would like to invite you to our celebratory tea party event.

The NHS has touched us all and the trust would like you to get involved in its celebrations.

 

The NHS Big 7Tea party event is a chance for people across Wirral to come together to celebrate 70 years of the NHS, raise a cuppa and enjoy a cake.

 

It’s also the perfect opportunity to celebrate its achievements, to appreciate the vital role the NHS plays in all of our lives, and to recognise and thank the extraordinary staff - the everyday heroes who are there to guide, support and care for us, day in, day out.

 

The free tea party event will be held at St Catherine’s Health Centre, Derby Road and you can drop in any time from 1.00pm - 4.00pm for a cuppa and a cake.

 

At the event people will also be able to find out more about the services we provide. Services from across the organisation, such as Sexual Health Wirral, Adult Social Care, 0-19 Health and Wellbeing Service, Nutrition and Dietetics and the Tele-triage Service, Nutrition and Dietetics plus many more will be showcasing their work and staff will be on hand to talk to people about the care, support and treatment they provide.

 

Wirral born Olympic field hockey player, Sam Quek, will also be at the event to announce the winners and runners up of the children’s Let’s Get Creative poster competition. 

 

Chief Executive Karen Howell said: “I started working in the NHS as a cadet nurse nearly 42 years ago, training in Wirral and Chester. Since then I have seen the NHS change from a reactive, treatment-based service to the innovative and proactive world leader in health and wellbeing that it is today. I am extremely proud to still belong to the NHS family, and to be a leader here in Wirral and indeed across the Cheshire and Merseyside Partnership. Bringing social care into our services now enables us to provide holistic care in Wirral. Now we need to work closer with Wirral people to ensure the NHS is sustainable for the next 70 years.”

 

What a great way to mark the NHS’s 70th birthday! Put the date in your diary and get ready to raise a cuppa, provided by Typhoo Tea, to the NHS.
