YEP says: We have to look after our own health to look after NHSur

The NHS was created out of the idea that good healthcare should be available to all, regardless of wealth. When it was launched by the then minister of health, Aneurin Bevan, on this day in 1948, it was based on three core principles: that it meet the needs of everyone, that it be free at the point of delivery and that it be based on clinical need, not ability to pay.

NHS 70

YEP says: A spoonful of human kindness helps the medicine go down

THE NATIONAL Health Service is – in many respects – emblematic of the advance of technology over the past 70 years. Operations once regarded as complicated, and necessitating long periods of convalescence, are now commonplace as more surgery is undertaken with pinpoint accuracy by state-of-the-art robotic devices. It means people can undergo hip replacements, or have prostates removed, as day patients – something that was inconceivable in 1948 – and Yorkshire is at the forefront of these changes.
