NHS at 75

Treating 1.3 million people a day in England, the NHS touches all our lives, and today we cannot imagine life without it. As we mark 75 years of the NHS, we are joined by two of the country’s leading NHS historians to look back on its achievements since 1948 and the challenges it has faced. We also look forward, asking what the NHS will look like in 25 years as we head towards its 100th anniversary.

Hosted by Chris Hopson, NHS England's chief strategy officer, hear from Professor Stephanie Snow, historian of medicine and healthcare and lead for the influential NHS at 70 oral histories project; and Andrew Seaton, historian of modern Britain and author of A History of Britain's Best Loved Institution.

This session is part of the NHS at 75 Zone, which is supported by RLDatix.
