The NHS turns 70 this year – and to mark the occasion Therese met the wonderful Ethel in Parliament today who worked as anurse on the first day of our NHS – the 5th July 1948.
Therese said: "Our health service would not be the fantastic organisation it is without the staff and volunteers that support it every day.
I look forward to having the chance to nominate some excellent local services as part of the #NHS70Parliamentary Awards taking place this year."
