The NHS is born
At one minute past midnight on July 5th 1948, Edna Thomas gave birth to a baby girl at Amman Valley Hospital, Carmarthenshire.
She was the first child to be born in the newly created NHS. Her mother said choosing her name was easy.
Aneira, is the female version of the Welsh name Aneurin – the first name of the founding father of the NHS – Aneurin Bevan.
