How can I share a story on the NHS at 70 website?

You need to register as a member of the NHS at 70 website. Once you’ve completed the registration process you will be able to upload own story, photos and/or recordings.

Can anyone join the NHS at 70 website?

We welcome everyone interested to the website. When you join the website this will allow you to submit your own story, photos and/or recordings and access the Archive. However, the NHS at 70 project team will moderate all material before it’s posted.

What if I need help with uploading a story or an image?

If you have any problems with uploading material please get in touch with the project team.

Is there a limit to how many submissions I can make?

No you can upload as many stories, photos and/or recordings as you like.

Can I name people in my submission?

If you want to name other people it’s best for you to check first that they don’t mind. If you’re not in touch with them, it’s probably wise to avoid actually naming them.

Can I name places (e.g. a hospital or clinic)?

It’s fine to mention the place where something you’re recalling took place.

What if I have a complaint about a health service or healthcare professional?

We want you to share your stories, and we know they won’t all be positive. But the aim of the NHS at 70 website is to collect a broad and diverse history of the NHS. Our project is run from the University of Manchester and is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. It is not part of the NHS and our team members are not employed by the NHS. We are not able to deal with complaints relating to NHS services or healthcare professionals. You can find information on how to make a complaint with the NHS here.

Does my submission need a title?

It will need a title to be posted on the website, but if you don’t choose one then we can choose a title for you.

Can I submit a photo to the website?

We would love to receive copies of your photos. To ensure we can make best use of them we have certain requirements about digital formatting, so if you can’t use the online submission form then please contact us and we’ll email you to make arrangements.

How can I contact you?
