Nurse (2)

The NHS is celebrating its 68th birthday this week. 

The National Health Service (NHS), which was launched on 5th July 1948 was seen as an eperimental service and was launched by the then Health Secretary, Aneurin Bevan at Manchester's Park Hospital (now known as Trafford General Hospital) to bring reliable, affordable healthcare for all in Britain.

Today, this ambitious service deals with more than 1 million patients every 36 hours in England alone, and employs more than 1.5 million people across the UK and is the fifth biggest employer in the world. 

Meridian Business Support are proud to cover and supply NHS jobs across the whole of the UK through our places on Crown Commercial Services (CCS), Health Trust Europe and Welsh Board National Frameworks.
