This weekend marks the 72nd anniversary of the NHS.

A minute’s silence will be held on Saturday at 8pm with people asked to light a candle in their window in remembrance of all those who have died during the pandemic.

Then on Sunday, a national round of applause takes place at 5pm on Sunday.

To mark the occasion, we’d like to hear why you love your local NHS and what you’re thankful for and how they’ve helped you or perhaps even saved your life.
