NHS SOCIAL & FRONTLINE WORKERS DAY

July 5th 1948 was a historic moment in our country’s history. It was the day our pioneering National Health Service (NHS) was born, bringing free healthcare to everyone. We have treasured it ever since, but never more so since March 2020 when the Coronavirus pandemic gripped the UK and utterly changed all our lives.

We have dedicated part of the Bournemouth Reggae Weekender 2021 to celebrate our frontline staff – our local NHS Heroes.

The organizers have added Friday 30th July 2021 to the event schedule to exclusively host NHS Frontline heroes in line with NHS Frontline day 5th July 2021. All-day proceeds will go to Hospitals Dorset NHS Charity and The National Care Association.
