The 60th anniversary of the NHS in 2008 was celebrated throughout NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, and to commemorate the occasion we created a dedicated website which you can access via the image below. The site contains a wealth of photographs of our hospitals and services throughout the 60 years, and we asked staff and the public for their memories and stories so we could share them on the website.
Various events were held across our hospitals and community sites, but our main celebration of the 60th Anniversary of the NHS in Greater Glasgow and Clyde was a feature packed event hosted by Radio Clyde presenter Gina McKie, and took place on the 5th July in the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.
As well as presentations of the Diamond Awards, there were heart-warming and inspirational patient stories, exhibition areas, slideshows, archive photographs, music from the NHSGGC Choir, staff dressed in uniforms from years gone by, free goodies, a boogie bus outside, and more! Truly something for everyone!
