NHS 60th Anniversay - Isle of Man Celebrations 22 January 2008

On 5th July this year, the NHS celebrates its 60th ‘birthday’.

Here on the Island, a number of excellent suggestions have been put forward by Department staff to celebrate the occasion. The July issue of InTouch will feature some of those suggestions put into action, but here is just a flavour of some of the excellent ideas put forward, which we are currently exploring:

  • Display of NHS memorabilia e.g. old uniforms, medical bag etc.
  • Tell Me series: Department of Education/Age Concern project, where school students interview members of the public about their memories.
  • 60 Helping Hands leaflet: Summarising 60 local sources of help/advise e.g. Arthritis, MS, Dementia etc.
  • Past and Present series: interviews with retired and current staff e.g. theatre nursing then and now, mental health nursing then and now, district nursing then and now etc. We will offer recorded interviews/transcripts from media coverage to the Museum.
  • New pages on the DHSS website: To record interviews, photo’s, celebratory activity etc.
  • Commemorative tree planting with suitable plaque.
