Celebrating 70 years of the NHS in North Somerset

A cup of tea, a slice of cake and a chat about your health service

The National Health Service is turning 70 on 5 July 2018 and you are invited to join the celebrations. Weston Area Health NHS Trust (WAHT) is holding a Big NHS 7Tea tea party in the physiotherapy gymnasium at Weston General Hospital between midday and 15:00 on Thursday 5 July 2018.


WAHT’s big tea party, raising money for the Weston General Hospital Scanner Appeal, is open to members of the public, staff and patients. So if you are visiting the hospital that day, why not bring your friends and family along for a cuppa. There will be cake as well as refreshments and plenty of sharing knowledge and experiences of the NHS within North Somerset, and specifically Weston-super-Mare, over the years.
