Introducing the NHS

The British National Health Service or NHS as it's better known was introduced a couple of years after the end of WWII.

This is the cover sheet from the document introducing it to the people of the UK.

Reading it I was struck by the tone-of-voice.

Simple. Straightforward. Friendly.

And absolutely no sign of jargon.

Can you imagine what it would be like if it was written today?

I'm shuddering just thinking about it.
