NHS Quiz

It's the birthday week of our beloved NHS! What better way to inject even more fun into the ‘Big 7Tea’ fundraising office parties that are happening across our UK offices than with a general knowledge quiz all about the NHS?!

Everyone’s welcome to take part — staff, candidates and clients alike! To join in the fun, pick a quiz-master and get them to either:

  • Download the quiz questions only (PDF), print and distribute among your group for a classic quiz experience,

  • Or, to save paper, copy and paste the questions on this page and email to your group.

Either way, the quiz-master has the answers (available on the second download) and decides when the time is right to unleash them!

We hope you enjoy our NHS quiz and, that it helps towards any fundraising activities that support the great British institution that is, the NHS!
