On Monday 5 July at 3pm we welcome everyone to take five on what will be the NHS’ birthday and known as the tea party of the year – The NHS Big Tea.

It will be a day of national reflection on all the hard work that has taken place since COVID-19 began, and an outpouring of love will be displayed nationally to NHS staff.

This day is dedicated to NHS staff and encourage people to join in on the day or anytime during the week, by hosting a tea party or setting some time aside to have a well-deserved break with a cuppa. Please remember to follow the current Government guidelines.
