NHS at 60

I’ve been reading through some of the stories celebrating the 60 years of the NHS, two that caught my eyes were Professor Harold Ellis recollections about his time in the NHS and the BBC documentary NHS at 60 broadcast yesterday and still available for download from the BBCi player site.

Both show different sides of the story, but the documentary without a doubt really showed what the UK might have become had the NHS not started up when it did.

Perhaps people that always want to knock it should sit back and take stock at what we have, yes it does cost a lot of money and yes it does need to be better run and yes if does need more medically trained staff.

But we should all be grateful that for the NHS, I’m sure in its early days, it saved many people and set an increased standard of health that we have all come to enjoy.
