Sands Films studio has invited Miriam Margolyes, Mark Thomas and others, such as Dr Bob Gill, to read poems about the NHS written by nurses, doctors and other NHS staff.

These poems give a unique insight into the real experiences of the people at the heart of the NHS, caring for us from the moment of birth to the end of life. In crystallising the most beautiful and painful moments of being human, they speak directly to us all.

This evening presentation is a mix of live and pre-recorded readings, commentaries and thoughts about the NHS.

The anthology also includes poems donated by leading UK poets including Michael Rosen, Roger McGough, Lemn Sissay, Sabrina Mahfouz, Kate Clanchy, Sam Guglani, Charly Cox, Molly Case, Wendy Cope, and the estates of U A Fanthorpe, Dannie Abse and Julia Darling.

All proceeds will go to NHS Charities Together’s COVID-19 EMERGENCY FUND for the duration of this fund; and then to the 140 official NHS Charities raising money for NHS hospitals, ambulance services, community and mental health services across the UK.

STEPHEN FRY: “A wonderful anthology to celebrate the NHS, which itself is the greatest poem a country has ever written.”

MICHAEL ROSEN: “The very heart of who we are and what we are here for. An Exciting and wonderful book.”
