NHS70 - be involved!

The 70th anniversary of the NHS is coming up quick! Here are some more updates about the celebration, and how you can be involved!

Knitters - we need you!

We know we have some avid knitters across the Trust, which is why we'd love you to help us create an NHS 70 mascot, or create some NHS70 themed work! If you'd like to be involved, please contact the Communications and Engagement Team at dchst.communications@nhs.net

Historical photos

We'd really love to share with everyone just how much our sites and services have evolved over the years. If you have access to any older photos of our buildings or staff, then we'd love to be able to share them! Please get in touch via the email above.

Linking the NHS and schools
 
2018 is the NHS’s 70th birthday year. To mark this major milestone, we’re keen to improve our links with schools.
  
The NHS has teamed up with the charity Inspiring the Future to connect children and schools with NHS staff. As the service turns 70, why not commit one hour to talk to young people about your career and why you’d recommend a job in the NHS?

The NHS Big 7Tea

More than 60 NHS charities have come together to host the NHS Big 7Tea. Staff, patients and local people are being asked to host tea parties to mark the 70th birthday and to raise awareness and funds for NHS charities.
