BARNSLEY Hospital bosses are asking staff who have worked there to send in stories ahead of its 75th anniversary.

The National Health Service will celebrate its 75th birthday on July 5.

A hospital spokesperson said: “When it was founded in 1948, the NHS was the first universal health system to be available to all, free at the point of delivery.

“Those principles remain as relevant, and valued, today as they did in the years after the Second World War.

“And since then, the NHS has innovated and adapted to meet the needs of each successive generation, always putting patients at the heart of everything it does.”

As part of the celebration, the hospital are asking anyone who has worked at the site over the last 75 years to send in their memories.
