The 72nd birthday of our National Health Service is celebrated in this Sunday’s Virtual Service. It’s rather special for us in that it includes a personal reflection by Dr Ian Drever, a retired GP, and whose family associations with Medicine extend over several generations, both past and present. Our Locum, David Matheson, also has enjoyed a long working career with the NHS, and he also will be reflecting on the huge ‘family’ that the system has become and the immense role it plays in all our lives.
