These Are The Hands
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.
The anthology also includes poems donated by leading UK poets, Michael Rosen, Lemn Sissay, Roger McGough, Wendy Cope, Sabrina Mahfouz, Molly Case, Kate Clanchy, Sam Guglani, Charly Cox, and the estates of UA Fanthorpe, Dannie Abse and Julia Darling.
All proceeds will go to NHS Charities Together which supports over 140 official NHS charities raising money for NHS hospitals, ambulance services, community and mental health services across the UK.
