Time to celebrate with the NHS Big Tea!

The NHS’ birthday is on 5th July and what better way to celebrate one of the nation’s most loved institutions than with a cup of tea?

On and around 5th July, people up and down the country are getting together to raise a cuppa to our beloved NHS and raise funds for NHS charities.

Find out how you can get involved by finding an NHS Charity to support, plan a tea party, make a donation or 'do more'!

NHS Charities Together

Over the years NHS charities have funded major projects, pioneering research and medical equipment that could not and should not be funded by the NHS.

They support our hospitals, community and ambulance services to help patients across the UK access the best possible care when they need it most.

Celebrate, thank and give back to the NHS by supporting NHS Charities.
