Last call for your stories and comments!

by Roberta Bivins

It’s hard to believe that we have been working with you all to create a People’s History of the NHS for six years now! It has been wonderful to hear your stories and read your comments on our blogs, galleries and events. But now the People’s History of the NHS project is entering its last weeks. Between now and the end of the project this summer, we will be publishing a comic book with your stories at its heart; sharing the video of our “Vaccination Programmes, Past and Present’ Roundtable showcasing our new NHS People’s History Timeline and MOST IMPORTANLY, gathering in any final stories and comments YOU would like to share with us. So please do submit your stories and encourage your friends and family to do the same. They will be preserved for posterity (as always, under the terms that make you comfortable: you can choose these from our membership page!).

(The lovely image at the top, ‘Nurses, male and female, sitting reading newspapers and drinking tea in nurses sitting room at second Nurses Home’ captures The Retreat asylum’s second nurses home in the 1950s. The Retreat was never an NHS facility, but has been influential in mental health care in the UK since it opened in 1796).
