The NHS Big 7Tea party

The countdown to the NHS’s 70th birthday on the 5 July is on. To mark the occasion we have officially launched the NHS Big 7Tea. GP and TV presenter Dr Hilary Jones is the face of the campaign and recently he poured tea for NHS staff and Professor Jane Cummings, Chief Nursing Officer for England, in the gardens of St Thomas’ Hospital.


The NHS Big 7Tea is a partnership between more than 80 NHS charities with people across the country being asked to host a tea party on the big day and raise a cuppa to thank NHS staff. More than 800 people have already registered to host tea parties. We would like to encourage the whole nation to get involved, please register for your tea party pack
