NHS70 Celebrations at Leicester's Hospitals

This year is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the achievements of one of the nation’s most loved institutions, and more particularly, what we have achieved, those who have learnt and worked here, and those we have cared for at the three hospitals in Leicester.

Nationally, over the last 70 years, the NHS has transformed the health and well being of the nation, providing free high quality health care for all which has subsequently made it the envy of the world.

Throughout the year, we will be looking at ways to celebrate you and the achievements of our organisation (since it was formed as a Trust in 2000 and anything from before then!) 

Get involved!
