Service in Carlisle Catherdral to celebrate 70 years of the NHS

To celebrate the 70th birthday of the NHS, a service of thanksgiving and celebration will be held at Carlisle Cathedral this evening (Sunday 1st July 2018.

The celebration will bring together a procession of staff representing the many different elements of the NHS and its partner organisations that work together to deliver health and social care to the people of Cumbria.

The Bishop of Carlisle James Newcome will preach, with readings from NHS staff past and present.

The service will reflect on the history of the NHS, celebrate our staff, and look towards the future.

The Dean of Carlisle, Mark Boyling, said:

It is hard to think of anyone who is not touched in some way by an aspect of the National Health Service. So it is good to be able to invite people from across the county to come to the Cathedral for this special celebration. We have a lot to be thankful for.

Everyone is invited to come along from 5.30pm for tea and coffee, with the service to take place from 6.30-7.30pm.

For those in West Cumbria who are not able to get to Carlisle today, there will also be a celebration of 70 years of the NHS at St Nicholas's in the centre of Whitehaven from 12 noon to 4pm next Sunday, 8th July, with an open-air service at 2pm.
