John Rostill the Chief Executive of NHS Retirement Fellowship was invited to attend the Service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving, held at St Paul’s Cathedral on July 5th 2021 – the 73rd Anniversary of the NHS.
The event was attended by the Duke of Cambridge, The Prime Minister and Sir Simon Stevens and representatives of front line staff from across the country, including the Matron from Coventry, who gave the first vaccination and the Consultant from Newcastle who treated the first Covid-19 patients.
It was a multi-faith service and contributors reflected the huge diversity within the NHS.

A marvellous occasion, I felt honoured to be there’
