  • the design was chosen from 48 entries across South Yorkshire 
  • the winner met the Prime Minister and bagged £500 of art vouchers for our school
  • the competition celebrates £57.5 million of government investment to build new GP surgeries, nurse-led clinics and pharmacies across the region  

A Year 5 pupil, won the “Your NHS” art competition* in South Yorkshire with her design for the healthcare centre of the future.  

The competition, supported by the Department of Health and Social Care and the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System, invited local primary school children in the area to get creative to mark £57.5 million of government investment to build new GP surgeries, nurse-led clinics and pharmacies across the region.  

Open to all primary schools across South Yorkshire, the competition invited children to share their vision for the ideal hospital or healthcare centre of the future.  

The winning picture was chosen by a panel of expert local judges including Sir Andrew Cash, Chief Executive of the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System, after 48 entries were submitted by schools across South Yorkshire. The winner is pictured at 10 Downing Street with The Prime Minister, her mother and father Bianca and Simon Thompson as well as nine fellow winners from across the country. 

The judges were really impressed by the imaginative and inspiring winning entry. They particularly enjoyed the way the drawing looks into the future by imagining robot doctors, floating chairs and disappearing injury sprays.  

Designs featured healing gardens, robotic pharmacies and spray antibiotic slides. 10 entries from budding artists across the country were chosen as winners. The 10 prize winners travelled to London on Monday 24th February to share their designs with the Prime Minister. The artistic talents of all the winners have also won them £500 of art vouchers for school.  

Our winner said: “I can’t believe I’ve won the Our NHS art competition. I really love drawing, and it was so much fun imagining what my local hospital could look like in the future. The NHS makes me feel safe and loved because it helps all of us so much when we are sick.” 

Well done!
