Celebrating 70 years of the NHS

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the National Health Service, at what could be described as its most challenging year yet. Despite this, we have a lot to thank the NHS for, and here at HCL, we have a year to do just that.

Over the course of 2018, you will be hearing from us about all things great and small that have come, and continue to come from our NHS. So, buckle up and continue to be in awe of one of the nation’s most loved institutions.
