"No society can legitimately call itself civilised if a sick person is denied medical aid because of lack of means".
Aneurin 'Nye' Bevan was a Welsh Labour politician, the Minister for Health from 1945-51 and a lifelong champion of social justice, rights of working people, and democratic socialism.
Bevan is best remembered today for spearheading the establishment of the National Health Service in 1948, to provide medical care free at point-of-need to all Britons.
