    Can I start by saying that last October saw the 120th birth anniversary of the NHS’ founder, Aneurin ‘Nye’ Bevan. Bevan himself admitted that there would never be enough money to satisfy all health needs but also declared that, were there enough folk with the will to fight for the NHS, it would survive as taxpayer-funded and free at point of use: what that fiery Welshman would have made of patients dying on trollies, NHS budgets being overspent and even pharmacy closures, is anyone’s guess / I’d shudder to think.

    So despite what might have been a better situation, despite the loss of nine million taxpayers: I wish our NHS well and all who serve in her, on this special anniversary.

    Happy birthday. In 1959 500 people in the UK lived to be 100. In 2014 this figure was 14,300. Well done the NHS.

    A fantastic happy birthday to NHS I was born before it started and remember my parents having to pay to see the doctor. I have had 3 children and numerous operations under NHS what a wonderful organisation

    I find it hard to believe that I was born 2 years before the NHS was created. To me the NHS has always been there to support us and freely give help when it is desperately needed. Long may it continue.

    Happy Birthday NHS

    You put up with so much stress

    But you put on a smile

    And that’s enough for a while

    To help keep you going

    Without any way of knowing

    If you’ll get enough dosh

    And bish bash bosh

    The smile goes away

    But let’s remember today

    We are all so proud

    We want to shout it out loud

    That we love our NHS

    We know it’s the best

    And we can make it better

    If we work hard together

    Seventy years now and seventy years more

    That’s just the beginning, now that’s for sure.
