Our NHS at 75: Fujifilm UK partners with NHS England to launch photography competition for health service’s staff and volunteers

To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the NHS, its staff and volunteers are encouraged to take part and share their stories through photos

Tom Watanabe, Managing Director of FUJIFILM UK Limited, said:

With Fujifilm’s founding heritage in photography, we know how powerful photos are in telling stories – and having applied this expertise to now be an industry leader in healthcare, our teams have seen but a handful of the incredible stories from within our health service. We are privileged to partner with the NHS, its staff and volunteers, to bring these perspectives to the forefront as we all come together to celebrate its 75th birthday.

Chief Nursing Officer for England, Dame Ruth May said:

None of the care we receive would be possible without the skill, dedication and compassion of hundreds of thousands of NHS staff and volunteers. Speaking personally, I know that joining the NHS nearly 40 years ago is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, and – as we mark the 75th year of the NHS – this competition provides an opportunity to celebrate the extraordinary diversity of NHS staff and volunteers’ talents – the reason the NHS is so beloved is frankly due to the brilliance of its people. I’m delighted to be a judge and I am looking forward to seeing all the entries which celebrate the uniqueness of our NHS – and its people.

Victoria Macdonald, Health and Social Care Editor for Channel 4 News said:

The NHS treats over a million people a day and, whilst under pressure, it’s clear that the public still firmly value the fundamental principles of the NHS. Over the past few years, we have seen NHS staff and volunteers at their very best but now we will see the health service through their eyes – through the prism of the lens – giving a powerful insight into their lives and their work. It is a privilege to be involved in this competition.
