NHS at 70: Seeking stories for new digital archive

'NHS at 70' is a UoM based project that aims to digitally archive stories from the long history of the NHS.

Here at The University of Manchester, NHS at 70 has been recording people’s NHS stories for the first Digital Archive of NHS history since 2017.

Leaflet advertising NHS at 70The NHS has been part of everyday life in the UK since 1948 and COVID-19 will stand as an extraordinary period in its long history. We want to capture this moment by recording your experiences and reflections. Everyone is affected and we all have a story to share.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic we are now recording stories remotely - all you need is a telephone to get involved.

So whether you work/ have worked for the NHS or a related organisation, have received treatment from the NHS, have a chronic illness or are a carer, have volunteered for or have campaigned about the NHS, then please get in touch today.

We can offer single interviews or a series of shorter interviews.

Please email us at angela.whitecross@manchester.ac.uk or phone 0161 275 0560 and leave a voicemail

One of our team will get in touch with more details. With your permission, your story will be added to our Digital Archive, a collection to date of over 800 recordings.

You can see a selection of the stories we have collected on our website – take a look at our latest exhibition ‘Moments of Care’.
