The NHS is an incredible human rights achievement
Published on 29 Nov 2019
It’s been 70 years since the beginning of the National Health Service. We think that’s something to shout about!
The NHS is a historic public system that we, the UK, should pride ourselves on. It is an image of equality, where you can expect to be free from discrimination while using the healthcare service. Today, we spoke to Dr Charlotte Riley about what the NHS embodies for human rights, and why it’s so vital that we continue to fight for its protection so that it may continue to protect us.
EachOther is a UK-focused charity that uses independent journalism, story-telling and film-making to put the human into human rights. The digital content we produce is grounded in the lived experience of ordinary people affected by human rights issues. We involve them in the process of developing their stories, rather than talking for or over them. Theirs are the voices we platform and amplify to our lay audience of over a million viewers each year. In this way, we hope to grow public support for human rights here in the UK.
