Speech by Rt Hon Caroline Flint MP to the NHS 70th Birthday event in Edlington
Welcome to everyone and to our honoured guest Mayor Jones.
It is a pleasure to be here, although I wanted to start by giving you a tweet posted by my daughter earlier this week:
“2 x broken writs, 1 x snapped thumb, 1 x dislocated finger, 1 x removal of grit in knee, 3 x torn ligaments, 4 x sprained ankles, 3 x asthma attacks, 2 x kdney infections, 15 x flu jabs. Thanks for fixing me up all these years me up all these years #NHS70”
