A special service to celebrate 70 years of the NHS is being held at 18:00 on Wednesday 26th September at All Saints Church in Ryde.

All NHS staff across the Island, everyone involved in health and wellbeing services and members of the public are invited to attend.

The service is supported and led by the Chaplaincy Team at Isle of Wight NHS Trust and will feature the Island’s NHS Nightingales Choir. NHS staff who wear uniform to work are asked to attend in uniform to provide a sea of colour across the church.
