Rochdale physios celebrate 70 years of keeping people active in the NHS
AS part of The NHS 70th birthday celebrations within Bury & Rochdale Care Organisation the Physiotherapy team at Rochdale Infirmary held a tea party for patients, families and staff to celebrate.
Patients and staff all came together to share their positive experiences and memories from the days when the NHS was first founded 70 years ago.
People were encouraged to climb the physiotherapy steps and whilst doing so read the timeline showing how the NHS developed. There was also music from the 1940s, and people gathered to watch an NHS 70 video that explained how the NHS was founded, and how it has changed over the years.
Liane Hickling, Team Lead Physiotherapist at Rochdale Infirmary said:
“It was lovely to be able to celebrate our involvement with patients and other staff in our physiotherapy gym at Rochdale Infirmary. As physiotherapists our team is proud to work for the National Health Service and privileged to be able to help people and make a difference. Long may the NHS continue.”
