    Happy 70th Birthday NHS. As a patient, just want to say thanks to St. Helier A+E and outpatients especially for a very good service. As a nurse who has worked in it for nearly thirty years,(family total – 85 years service!) it has been a major part of my life. Although some things still need to be improved , I hope it remains forever for I know many people don’t know where they would be without it.

    My mother met my farther at St Helier where she was a nurse and he a gardener. If it wasn’t for St Helier I’d never have been born. We must fight to save our hospitals, but even better, fight to expand them.

    Happy Birthday NHS, Thanks for all your hard work, especially now when too many take you for granted. I was born 2 years prior to your birth when people had to pay. You were there for the birth of my child and her child and there when I broke my hip last year. You were there for my brother when his heart needed repair nearly 20 years ago and he’s still going strong at 84. You were there for my daughter who has enduring mental ill health issues. What would we do without you. Stop privatisation by the back door and let’s keep the one thing this country can be really proud of.

    Happy 70th Birthday. Hope this wonderful and unique institute is not melted down by backdoor privatisation and starving funding required for its survival.

    It is thanks to the NHS that I survived meninigitus at 2. So all power keeping the best service in the best system in the world, even if sadly underfunded.

    I was born in a private hospital, three years before the birth of the NHS.

    My family and I, including a premature baby, owe a huge debt of gratitude to this national treasure.

    I wish the NHS a very Happy 70th Birthday. What an amazing job they have done for the citizens of UK over the last 70 years. May they go on from strength to strength and may there soon be more resources and personnel so that they are not so stretched in their work so much of the time.

    Happy Birthday NHS! St Helier is an amazing example of a hospital with wonderful caring staff and great healthcare. They have always been there for my family and me. When my father had serious health issues and nearly died, the care and compassion they showed us was extraordinary. We will always be grateful. Thank you

    Happy birthday and thank you for all the care we have received. Thank you to the maternity staff at St Helier for delivering my son safely into the world and caring for us both afterwards. And so much more.
