My name is Belinda Johnston and I had the privilege and honour of attending a service to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the NHS at Westminster Abbey. This had a special resonance for me as my grandfather, Clement Attlee, was instrumental as prime minister in getting the health service set up.
Belinda Johnston has years of experience working in cancer prevention for the NHS. She is treasurer of the European Cancer Prevention Organisation and an honorary steward of Westminster Abbey.
