It Starts With You 

The more people share their ideas, experiences and concerns about NHS and social care, the more services can understand what works, what doesn't and what people want from care in the future.

As the NHS turns 70, we're encouraging more people to tell us what they think and help make care better for them, their families and their communities.

Find out more about our campaign to get more people sharing their stories.
