On 5 July 2022, the NHS will mark 74 years of service. This milestone will present us with opportunities to showcase how the NHS has innovated and adapted to meet the changing needs of each successive generation.

We can all play a role in supporting the NHS in this birthday year, by volunteering, raising money for a local NHS charity, or by taking steps to look after our own health and using services wisely. To sign up to host your own NHS Big Tea event and receive a fundraising support pack, please visit www.nhscharitiestogether.co.uk

In 1942 Liberal William Beveridge produced a report, the Beveridge Report, which identified five evil giants – want, disease, ignorance, squalor and idleness. In identifying disease as a barrier to progress, he proposed a free national health service.

In 1946, the new government passed the National Health Service Act.
