Service in Whitehaven tomorrow for the NHS's 70th birthday.

Following on from the NHS70 parkruns, the excellent service in Carlisle Cathedral l;ast week and various other events to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the NHS, there will be a series of events including an open air service at St Nicholas's Gardens in Whitehaven tomorrow (8th July 2018)

Refreshments will be available in St Nicholas’ Coffee Shop in aid of NHS related charities, and there will be health related information stalls and family entertainment, with an open air service at 2pm led by Revd Robert Jackson.

Health campaigner Carole Woodman, of St Bees, has organised the event.

She said: “We focus on the hospital but there are so many services that happen outside the hospital as well. It’s about celebrating all NHS staff.

“Even though we are concerned about services moving there are some good things happening. For example, in September we are going to get year three medical students back again. 

“This is an opportunity for people to come and see some of the things that are happening and celebrate the hard work our NHS staff are doing. 

“It’s a thanksgiving celebration really for Whitehaven and Copeland, and an important event as we look forward to how we want our services to be in the future.”
