NHS 70 year success down to ‘brilliance’ of staff says Simon Stevens

NHS chief executive Simon Stevens has today sent a message of “heartfelt thanks” to staff on the health service’s 70th anniversary, saying that the NHS’s enduring success is down to their “brilliance”.

In the message shared on the NHS’s birthday, Simon paid tribute to the achievements of 1.5 million doctors, nurses, ambulance staff, therapists, porters, caterers and countless others who, along with volunteers and those working behind the scenes make up the biggest care team in the world.
