NHS birthday celebrations

We hope that you will join us for the biggest thank you ever!

On Sunday 5th July, the NHS is celebrating it’s 72nd birthday on what has been the most challenging year since it’s creation in 1948.

The coronavirus pandemic has shown us all just how much we need our NHS heroes both on the frontline, and as essential workers.

Will you be joining us as we applaud all the amazing staff who have supported our community over the last few months?

Southampton Hospitals Charity Thanking You

If you’re looking for a way to create some extra atmosphere or to keep the kids entertained, these posters can be downloaded, coloured in, and personalised with the name of the person or team who you’d like to thank.

Display your artwork in your window for the world to see, or upload it to our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts as we’d love to see your creations! Don’t forget to tag us and use #ThankYouTogether.

To make the most of this special event, we have downloadable material below to help you say ‘Thank you’ to our NHS heroes.

COVID ZERO campaign launched

This week the campaign, called COVID ZERO, was the first of its kind to be launched by a hospital trust in England.

It has one clear message both for the Southampton community as well as the Trust’s 11,500 staff; Walk, Wear, Wash.

Residents across the city are being urged to mirror protective measures in place across hospital sites, in their own communities – follow government guidance when walking apart, wear a mask where you can’t, and continue to wash your hands as often as possible. Discover more here.
