Celebrating 70 Years of the NHS in Scotland


On 5 July 2018, the NHS will celebrate its 70th Anniversary. It’s the perfect opportunity to thank our extraordinary NHS staff and our partners, to recognise how far we’ve come with advances in care, treatment, science and technology, and to look forward to the future shape of health and social care.

We rely on the skill, dedication and compassion of NHS staff, as well as our many partners in care and our volunteers to deliver our service.

Our NHS is the envy of the world and NHSScotland is seen as a world leader in healthcare quality. Scotland’s approach to health and social care integration will continue to ensure we have services fit for the future and we will continue to build on our successes as we meet our changing needs.
