Hello #Plymouth – 75 years ago this week, Labour created our #NHS.
Thank you to all the brilliant people working in our National Health Service who have made it such an important part of the fabric of Britain.
I have seen just how vital our NHS is recently myself after my cancer diagnosis. I had been sent to my GP by my other half who was worried about a bump on my arm. My GP told me not to worry about that one but spotted a bump on my face she was concerned about. A biopsy confirmed it was cancer.
I am incredibly indebted to the NHS staff who identified, biopsied and operated on me. The NHS is the backbone of Britain. I know the pressure on primary care and acute hospitals is immense and growing, but without exception the care NHS staff gave me was exceptional.

Deep down most of us think we’re invulnerable and impervious to harm but the blunt truth is we are not. Thanks to the NHS, the cancer was spotted early, and my outcomes look good. I owe that not just to the institution of the NHS, but the principles and the people of the NHS. They’re worth fighting for.
So let’s keep supporting our NHS so we can celebrate 75 more years.
