The NHS at 75

Yesterday marked 75 years since the NHS was founded on the core principle of making good quality healthcare available to all for free at the point of delivery, regardless of wealth. Celebrations were held across the country and the occasion was marked by a service in Westminster Abbey, famous landmarks and buildings being lit up in blue, while the Prince and Princess of Wales baked cakes for the NHS Big Tea Party.

The NHS has been under increasing strain in recent years, with much debate about how to alleviate this and reduce the burden. Supporting our health service is one of newfoundland’s core aims, which is why our tests do not rely on medical professionals or laboratories to administer or process the results - ensuring that illnesses, diseases and conditions do not go undetected. We offer a range of at-home tests for a number of health markers such as vitamin levels, cancer markers and fertility checks.

We’ve taken a look at some of the key milestones and breakthroughs that have shaped the legacy of the NHS and made it one of our most cherished institutions.
