Giving gifts is an overlooked aspect of the everyday history of the NHS. The bag of grapes or magazine brought in for the patient. The bunch of flowers or box of chocolates for the nurses. The get well card and the thank you card. Even the sponsored half-marathon to give something back.
These are all everyday rituals in the NHS. They are part of its lived history yet never feature in its written history. Help us change that by completing our short survey on gift-giving in the NHS or by signing up below and become a member and share more memories.
