As we celebrate the 75th birthday of the National Health Service, we wanted to recognise the extraordinary dedication of NHS staff and those who work or volunteer alongside them. Without them, the NHS would not be what it is today: the institution that our fellow citizens say makes them most proud to be British.
To commemorate this special occasion and champion those who work so tirelessly to support health and wellbeing, we’re pleased to showcase Our NHS at 75 — an uplifting and inspiring photography exhibition held in central London. A collaboration between Fujifilm UK and NHS England, the exhibition will be running throughout July and August.
In April, we launched a competition, providing NHS staff and volunteers the opportunity to share photos expressing their unique stories of what the NHS means to them. From smartphone selfies to photos taken with professional photography equipment, each and every image brought a new insight into life in the NHS.
With This Morning’s resident GP Dr Ellie, award-winning journalist Victoria Macdonald, eminent photographer Lewis Khan, Dr Habib Naqvi MBE, Fujifilm’s Theo Georghiades and Chief Nursing Officer for England, Dame Ruth May on the judging panel, the entries were whittled down. The five winning photographs, along with 70 commended entries will now be presented at the FUJIFILM House of Photography.
Photography is a fantastic storytelling medium, and each image in the exhibition offers a unique glimpse into the diverse and innovative world of the NHS.
Our NHS at 75 celebrates the incredible impact NHS teams have on the lives of patients, their families and communities. Discover a gallery of photos exploring five themes:
