Happy Birthday NHS

The NHS has just celebrated its 70th birthday this year. The NHS was set up in 1948 by Health Secretary Aneurin Bevan. The idea was to have healthcare under one umbrella organisation which would be free at the point of delivery. This means it would be paid for mainly through taxes, but when people need care, they would not have to pay.

The Ipswich Epilepsy Support Group would like to wish the NHS a happy birthday and thank them for all the work they have done and do and especially thank them for all the work they do to help people who suffer from epilepsy.
