Let's get together for an NHS Big 7Tea party

The NHS is turning 70 this year and what better way to celebrate one of the nation’s most loved institutions than with a cup of tea? On and around 5 July, people up and down the country will get together to raise a cuppa to our beloved NHS and raise funds for NHS charities.

Here at DCHS we have decided to combine our bake off events with holding an NHS Big 7Tea party at each of the four sites currently confirmed.  The bake off will be held in the morning followed by the NHS Big 7Tea party at around 1pm.  We will also be raising money for The DCHS Charitable Trust by selling cake from the bake offs at the tea parties.

The idea is simple: get staff, retired staff, volunteers, patients, users, carers, local community groups or even your family to join us at one of our NHS Big 7tea parties for a cuppa, a piece of cake and an opportunity to share NHS stories.

Whilst the communications team are contacting former DCHS staff to invite them to one of our NHS Big 7Tea parties, we would value your help spreading the word!  If you are in touch with a former member of staff or have a family member who has worked for the NHS please encourage them to join us.  Please also encourage patients and their carers to come along.

If you would like to host a NHS Big 7tea party at your site please get in touch with us!  E:dchst.communications@nhs.net
