Without its exceptional staff, the NHS would not be known as the envy of the world.

From the ambulance dispatchers who respond in times of emergency, to the speech and language therapists who provide life-changing treatment, the NHS would not be where it is today without the millions of people who keep it running day in, day out. And the millions more who have kept it going over the last 70 years.

That’s why, as the health service approaches its 70th anniversary, we want to celebrate the standout stars of the last seven decades – the staff within health and care who have gone the extra mile for patients, services and local communities.

So if you know someone who goes over and above – whether an activities coordinator or A&E doctor, care home nurse or cancer specialist, paediatrician or public health specialist – nominate them as one of Health and Care’s Top 70 Stars.

Anyone who has worked for NHS and wider health and care sector over the past 70 years can be nominated, whether still living or since passed.

Voting is open until 29 May.

Be part of NHS history and celebrate health and care’s standout stars.

I would like to nominate Kevin Read, my Dad, as a healthcare star. Kevin has worked for the NHS as a biomedical scientist in haematology and blood transfusion for many years, often on call and missing days out, whilst still finding time to look after the family. Without these unsung heroes of the NHS the blood products people need to keep them alive would not be available, and so throughout his career he has saved countless lives.
