NHS at 75

The NHS is one of the world’s largest employers and treats 1.3 million people a day in England. Behind the numbers are amazing staff who do amazing things, and patients with amazing stories.

In this session, Em Wilkinson-Brice, NHS England's national director for people, will chat to Aneira Thomas, the first baby born on the NHS; and May Parsons, the NHS matron who administered the world's first COVID-19 vaccine outside of clinical trials. We will also hear, through the award-winning poet Dr Kim Moore, the stories of staff from what is often considered the ‘birthplace’ of the NHS: Park Hospital (now Trafford General Hospital).

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