On 5th July it will be 63 years since the NHS was founded. Join us in wishing the NHS many Happy Returns.
It is even more important to mark the birthday of Britain's most popular institution this year, as we face the potential dismantling of the NHS in the form of Andrew Lansley's Health and Social Care Bill.
The NHS is working: Public satisfaction is at an all-time high. Doctors, nurses, midwives, support staff, patients groups and more have all spoken out about the dangers of these changes.
Let's celebrate 63 years of our wonderful health service, and fight to keep it safe, so we can celebrate a happy 64th birthday for it next year.
