Our National Health Stories Launches


This unprecedented national programme of artistic work made by staff in hospital settings will put the words and voices of NHS staff on stage and online to mark 75 years of the formation of the NHS, and we’re thrilled to be working on this amazing project.

Artistic Director, Kwame Kwei-Armah and a stellar creative team will curate and respond to work created by thousands of NHS staff from 19 hospital trusts across England, sharing what being part of the NHS means to them and the impact it has had on their lives. Culminating in a finale performance in November – a day-long, nationwide relay, live in hospitals and streamed on the Our National Health Stories website.

You can find out more on the website here. Brand is by the brilliant Peter & Paul.

Stay tuned for more news on the finale.

The project is funded by Arts Council England and NHS Charities Together in partnership with NHS England. It has been made possible through the support and funding of the 19 participating NHS Trusts and their hospital charities.
