The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited a hospital in King’s Lynn on Sunday (July 5) to mark the 72nd anniversary of the formation of the National Health Service (NHS)

WIlliam and Kate, spoke with medical staff and enjoyed afternoon tea with them set up on tables outside the hospital entrance.

To mark the anniversary across the country, the British public held another “Clap for Carers” at 5 p.m., a reprise of what had been a weekly tribute to doctors, nurses, and other frontline workers during the height of coronavirus lockdown.

The NHS 

The NHS was founded on July 5, 1948 by Aneurin Bevan, who was health minister in the Labour government at the time. He said the taxpayer-funded service should be free at the point of delivery, with treatment based on clinical needs and not a person’s ability to pay.
