Now at the age of (almost) 70 the NHS is perhaps in need of some TLC itself.  With an ageing population, cuts on resources, not enough nurses, Brexit, low morale in places and some of the most challenging times we have ever seen the NHS is perhaps facing some serious health issues.  Some might say the prognosis is poor but there are many dedicated healthcare professionals who are fighting to keep the NHS alive and fit for purpose. 

With this in mind perhaps now is the time to think about how we can take care of the NHS, what should be in our NHS Care Plan? This WeNurses discussion aims to explore some of the following:

  • What makes the NHS special? 
  • Why do we need to be concerned about the future of the NHS ? 
  • What should the NHS's care plan look like moving forward ?
  • If you were Secretary of State for Health what would be on your "to do" list to support the NHS ?
  • What should the NHS to look like in another 70 years time? 
  • What one thing would help you to care for the NHS?
