People’s History of the NHS Website: Project Information Sheet for Website Visitors

The People’s History of the NHS is part of a larger project exploring the Cultural History of the NHS, directed by Roberta Bivins and Mathew Thomson at the University of Warwick. We want to understand the role of the NHS in British culture over time. Your stories, memories, photographs and objects are the best tools we can have to tell this story. For the richest possible history we want to hear as many different voices as we can.

It is important that you know how your information may be used. All the information we receive will help us understand the NHS in British culture. The People’s History of the NHS website, including posted comments and submissions, is fully moderated. With your permission, we may use some of this information on the website, in public venues or in publications. We will never use your information without your consent, and you can tell us how it should be used.

Members of MyNHS will be able to access and comment upon other members’ contributions (if the contributors permit such access) via the MyNHS members area and the wider website. Members can also help to guide our research through suggestions and responses to our future calls.

You have the following options:

  • Anonymous contributions: You can tell us never to use your name or any other information that would reveal your identity.
  • Accredited contributions: You can tell us to credit you by name when we use your contributions on the website, in print, and in public.

Who can see what I submit?

  • Members only: You can tell us to share your submission only with other MyNHS members on the private section of this website.
  • With the public: You can allow us to share your submission with the public on this website and elsewhere.
  • Research publications: You can allow us to share your submission in our research (books, articles and in other formats).

We will only use your information in accordance with your stated preferences.

At the end of this project in 2019, the People’s History of the NHS website and all the information that has been submitted will be archived as a permanent record of the project, for use in the future. All future use of your contributions will adhere to the same access and privacy conditions that you select now.

If you have any questions about these options not covered in our FAQs page, please get in touch.
