Tenx9, the popular storytelling night held at the Black Box, Belfast, was part of NICON's HNS70 celebrations at Stormont on 5th July. Six people shared their own stories of the NHS, including staff, carers and patients.
You can listen back to two of the stories from the event, as well as my own poem: David Burke tells how becoming a patient made him a better doctor; surgeon Mark Taylor pays tribute to his grandad and those who treated him over his final years.
