Tynemouth MP Alan Campbell was today interviewed for a national oral history project which aims to capture thousands of people’s experiences of the NHS over its lifetime and reflect on the changes it’s effected in our national life. So far the project has collected hundreds of interviews from patients, porters, admins, buildings and estates people, surgeons, policymakers, nurses, carers and more.
Alan Campbell said “It was a great opportunity to reflect on my lifetime experience of healthcare, both on a personal level as well as as an MP over the years. It certainly gave me an opportunity to think aloud about its meaning and legacy and indeed what the future holds for the NHS.”
The project will eventually be housed in the British Museum but you can see the project so far at: nhs70.org.uk
