NHS Wolverhampton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), City of Wolverhampton Council and The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Hospitals Trust are inviting members of the public and their stakeholders to join them in celebrating the NHS turning 70 this week.

This event is being held on Friday 6 July in the café at Sainsbury’s St Marks, Raglan Street, Wolverhampton between 10am – 12pm.

Councillors and the CCG’s senior management team will be in attendance.

Dr Salma Reehana, Chair of Wolverhampton CCG, said:

“We are delighted to welcome members of the public to join us in recognising the achievements of the NHS and the hard work and commitment of NHS staff past and present.

Over the past 70 years, the NHS has evolved with the changing needs of the population. Nowadays, a greater number of people are living longer, many with complex health needs. This has resulted in a change in primary care; with an increasing demand on GP services. The NHS has kept up with this increase in demand by adopting new technology, which has allowed us to look at alternative access for patients, such as booking appointments online and repeat prescriptions. Through investing in digital technologies like apps, new medicines and genetic research, the NHS will continue to support us in living longer and healthier lives.”
