the BBC

As the NHS celebrates its 75th anniversary, a woman who became friends with its late founder claims that he treated "everybody with equal respect.".

Aneurin "Nye" Bevan spent his final years in Chesham, Buckinghamshire, and passed away there in 1960.

Mr. Bevan, a former Labour MP, led the development of the NHS while serving as health secretary from 1945 to 1951.

He was one of those people who treated everyone with respect, according to Hannah Harman Brown. ".

When Tony Harman, a member of the Labour party, convinced Mr. Bevan to purchase a farm outside of Chesham in 1955, Mrs. Harman Brown first got to know him.   .

Bevan Hill, a street in the town, is named in his honor.

"He was very loving, and I believe we all loved him and felt love back," she said.

I don't think any other Labour politicians had the same level of public awareness. Of all the politicians who were in office at the time, only Churchill came close to the kind of general knowledge about him and his existence. ".
