NHS 75th anniversary schools pack
To help mark its 75th anniversary, the NHS will be celebrating with a wide variety of activities across the country on 5 July 2023 and we’re hoping to get as many schools involved to show support to their local hospital, University Hospital Southampton (UHS) by fundraising for the hospital charity.
We are the hospital charity at UHS and Southampton’s Children’s Hospital, and we’d love it if your school would consider celebrating this milestone by asking students to take on an activity based around the number 75 to raise funds for the Charity.
In addition to the celebrations, the NHS has teamed up with Inspiring the Future to inspire children to consider a career in the Service.
The ‘NHS Ambassadors’ programme connects NHS staff with schools to give talks – in person or virtually. By talking about their job, NHS staff will help to illustrate the connection between what students are studying in the classroom and the potential opportunities available in the NHS, recognising that the Service has over 350 different careers on offer.
Schools and teachers who would like to arrange a talk, should visit: www.england.nhs.uk/NHS75talks
