Celebrating the NHS
Campaigners in Wishaw joined a national campaign to celebrate the 70th birthday of the NHS.
Activists from the local branch of the Labour Party were gathering signatures for their NHS birthday card outside the Houldsworth Health Centre on Kenilworth Avenue.
Wishaw councillor Angela Feeney, who is also the Labour Party candidate for Motherwell and Wishaw constituency, said: “It was great to be out with local activists to celebrate this landmark birthday.
“It offers us all the chance to recognise the work of its staff.
“In times of unprecedented demand and financial pressure, our healthcare workers are the lifeblood of the NHS, and it is their hard work that keeps the health service running.”
