Happy 65th Birthday to the NHS!

Eltham residents were queuing in Eltham High Street on Saturday morning to sign a card wishing the NHS a happy 65th Birthday.

Eltham MP Clive Efford who was in the High Street said: “It was very humbling to hear the accounts of people whose lives – or those of friends, families and loved ones – had been saved or immeasurably improved by the NHS, which for many of them had stood by them from birth.”

“But they were also there because they recognise that under this government the NHS is under threat now, more than it ever has been in the last 65 years.  Because this government is betraying our NHS both locally and nationally.”
