Our NHS celebrated its 70th birthday this year. It’s an organisation woven into the fabric of our way of life with each and every one of us using its services in some shape or form.
To get here from 1948, the NHS has been constantly evolving and adapting to meet changing needs and expectations. From a growing and older population to new treatments and technologies – our NHS is ever changing and rightly so too, we all want our NHS to provide the best possible treatment and care.
Here at Northumbria we have a strong track record of being at the forefront of innovations in the NHS. In many ways we are already embracing many of the challenges faced by today’s NHS. We are harnessing new technologies and treatments, and leading the way nationally for integrating health and social care; with revolutionary outcomes for patients.
But there’s more we can do to get fit for the future.
Our journey continues..check out our latest animation which sets out some of our plans for the next five years here.
