Today, July 27th , sees the start of the London Olympics.
The NHS was founded in July 1948 and later that summer, London hosted the first post-war Olympics. Being only a few months old at the time I don’t remember anything about those events, but here I am in London, 64 years later, celebrating both again.
I understand that the opening ceremony will devote some time to making the connection between 1948, the NHS and the London Olympics.
As a Londoner I find all this very exciting will be suspending the blog for the duration of the Olympics – and will then take a holiday.
Normal service will be resumed on September 3rd.
Enjoy the games!
