The NHS turns 70 this month!

To celebrate, we’re giving 25 new supporters a free copy of the 1952 book written by the NHS founder himself.

The NHS has transformed our health, increasing life expectancy, reducing infant mortality and all but eliminating diseases like TB and Polio. But it’s facing some serious challenges…

‘Much has changed since the NHS came into existence in 1948 and since Bevan wrote In Place of Fear four years later. But it is also remarkable just how many of the issues raised by Bevan still have resonance today.’ Dave Prentis, General Secretary, UNISON

As an independent think tank, we’re working hard to keep the NHS’s founding principles of free, universal and comprehensive healthcare alive and ensure:

  • everyone receives the care they need, no matter who they are.
  • everyone shares the costs of that care relative to their means
  • the NHS reaches and cares for the people who need it the most.

You can help us by becoming a Bevan Foundation Supporter – start donating just £3.25 a month this July and, as a special thank you, we’ll send you a free copy of ‘In Place of Fear’*.
