“What shines through with all the stories is a deep affection for the NHS.”
Henry Marsh, author of Do No Harm
Founded on the concept of providing healthcare to rich and poor alike, the National Health Service (NHS) has been at the heart of our everyday experiences of life and death since 1948, and has been lived by millions.

From Joan Meredith, who stood on street corners in the freezing winter to campaign for a new health system, to one of the first patients diagnosed with HIV/Aids, Jonathan Blake, and Klarissa Velasco, who comforted and held the hands of people suffering from Covid-19, this beautiful book tells, for the first time ever, the moving story of our world-leading health service through the voices of the patients, nurses, doctors, porters and ordinary people who have turned it into the beating heart of our country.

Our Stories is a heart-warming account of an amazing institution.
