On 5th July we joined many of our colleagues across the country to celebrate the 70th birthday of the NHS where we ate far too much cake and drank lots of tea. We wanted to share some of the highlight with you.
In addition to these activities we also had a tea party in our children’s nurseries, a service of thanksgiving in our Multi Faith Centre and many celebrations out on our wards, involving patients and visitors.
We also involved the community around us inviting schools and patients to help us celebrate. Thank you to everyone who took part and made it such a success.
Birthday cakes a plenty for NHS70
Colleagues at Ashford Hospital enjoyed a coffee morning with a breakfast buffet kindly donated by Tesco Ashford.
At St Peter’s Hospital afternoon tea was enjoyed using some vintage crockery taking us back to the day it all started. Both hospital sites received huge identical birthday cakes which they enjoyed with a traditional cuppa to celebrate NHS70.
Huge thank you to OCS Catering for creating the amazing birthday cakes and supporting these events.
