People's History of the NHS


‘Brown to prevent, blue for emergencies’: NHS in my house selfie

"My asthma went away for many years but came back when I moved to London (I think because of the Plane Trees and their fat pollen). I went to visit my GP (a husband and wife practice where the receptionist always asks if you want to see the Lady Doctor or the Man Doctor when you make an appointment) and she got very alarmed at my feeble lung capacity. The brown helps with that, I'm now one of the fitter players on my 7-a-side football team rather than doubled over wheezing after 5 minutes."
