NHS70: Celebrating 70 years of the NHS – NHS Voices

1 July 2018 – Radio Fox and all Hospital Radio stations across the UK have been asked by the team at NHS Voices if we can support their song which is being released on Friday 6th July to celebrate the NHS70 anniversary. On ITV1 on Wednesday 4th July at 9pm on there will be an attempt at a world record for the biggest singalong. Please tune in on the night and be part of this record breaking attempt.

NHS Voices brings together superstar singers and healthcare heroes to create a special single that marks the 70th birthday of the NHS. Created by a team of NHS employees, this anniversary anthem gives everyone a chance to celebrate the dedication of healthcare staff. The choir have recorded the Beatles song, With A Little Help From My Friends. 2 years ago, the choir had a Christmas No 1, and the same choir (from Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust) plus a collection of famous voices who will be joining them on the night, including Blue, Alexandra Burke and Tony Hadley. To be screened on ITV1 on Wednesday 4th July at 9pm on there will be an attempt at a world record for the biggest singalong. The event is also supported by other famous musicians. Be sure to tune in on the night. ITV will be releasing details of the huge nationwide singalong to launch the single shortly.

The single With A Little Help From My Friends will then be released on 6th July 2018 to celebrate NHS70, and all proceeds will go to NHS Charities Together. Radio Fox would like all its members and many friends in Leicestershire to support this event.


NHS70: Celebrating 70 years of the NHS

11 June 2018 – The National Health Service is turning 70 on 5th July 2018. It’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate the achievements of one of the nation’s most loved institutions, to appreciate the vital role the service plays in our lives, and to recognise and thank the extraordinary NHS staff – the everyday heroes – who are there to guide, support and care for us, day in, day out. This year is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the achievements of one of the nation’s most loved institutions, and more particularly, what we have achieved, those who have learnt and worked here, and those we have cared for at the three hospitals in Leicester. Nationally, over the last 70 years, the NHS has transformed the health and well being of the nation, providing free high quality health care for all which has subsequently made it the envy of the world.

In Leicester we are holding our Big 7-Tea Party on 5th July at Devonshire Place and an event for families we’re working on with the University of Leicester – a Teddy Bear’s Picnic. See our poster.

The University of Leicester and the local NHS Trusts it works with every day would like to invite the Leicester community to attend a FREE Family Day at the University’s main campus. We would like to raise awareness about the NHS and its wonderful gift to us, and encourage our children – the next generation – to value our healthcare system and support the NHS as it goes forward.

Children and their favorite stuffed animals are invited to join us for a Teddy Bear Clinic, a fun event that helps educate children about what happens at the doctor’s office.
Each child’s stuffed animal is checked-in, then children take their animals in to meet with a medical student doctor  for a check-up. Medical students will also be running mini-health checks for the teddies owners and their parents.

Are you a Leicester Baby we’re looking for your baby photos.  NHS70: Share your stories! To mark the 70th anniversary of the NHS, we are asking you all to share your stories with the Hospitals!
