The NHS is 70

A Manchester Met Celebration

In 2018, the National Health Service turns 70.

This milestone provides the perfect opportunity to celebrate the NHS’s vast achievements, and to recognise how it benefits every single one of us.

We want to highlight the outstanding contributions made by Manchester Met staff and students over so many years, and to appreciate and thank the extraordinary NHS staff – the everyday heroes – who are there to guide, support and care for us, day in, day out.

From pioneering treatments like the world’s first liver, heart and lung transplants, to bionic eyes which can restore sight, the NHS has delivered huge medical advances and improvements to public health, meaning we can all expect to live longer lives.

Join us and be part of the celebrations.
