    Illustration from the cover of todays BMJ

    The British National Health Service started on 5 July 1948, 60 years ago today.
    The online Guardian has an interesting page to mark this event, with lots of articles and features, and I recently posted a 1948 public information film explaning the new service, as well as a clip from Michael Moore's film Sicko, which you can see here.
