ISS supports official commemorative book celebrating 75 years of the NHS
ISS was proud to join with the History of Parliament Trust - one of the most ambitious and authoritative academic projects in British history - in unveiling a new publication entitled ‘NHS 75: Celebrating 75 years of the National Health Service’.
The special commemorative book has been produced in partnership with leading publisher St James's House and written by a team of academics and industry experts. Exploring the origins, history and impact of the NHS, the fully illustrated publication marks the 75th anniversary of the service, and the people and policies that have shaped it.
For more than three decades, ISS has been proud to serve the NHS in true partnership, providing critical facilities management services to hundreds of NHS buildings nationwide - delivered by people who care. With more than 10,000 ISS people supporting Trusts across the country each day, the company is focused on finding ways to positively impact patient experience and health outcomes, from providing clean and hygienic facilities and maintaining critical infrastructure to aiding patient recovery through the 'medicine of food' and much more.
During the unprecedented period of the pandemic, ISS played a key role in the NHS's emergency response, helping to keep hospitals running and supporting clinical staff around the clock - even helping to establish protocols for the country's first Nightingale Hospital in south London.
"We are delighted to help celebrate this momentous milestone for the NHS,” says Donna Brown, managing director for Healthcare at ISS UK & Ireland. “Across the business, our people are united by a passion to serve patients, support our clinical colleagues and, most importantly, safeguard this vital national institution for future generations."
Richard Freed, founder of St James's House, says:
"We're delighted to be launching this fantastic book heralding all that is great about the National Health Service. The 75th anniversary offers the perfect opportunity to reflect on the past, present and future of the NHS."
‘NHS 75: Celebrating 75 Years of the National Health Service’ is available to order at:
