Make the NHS the Xmas Number 1
An NHS tribute song mash-up of Coldplay and Simon &
Garfunkel is being released tomorrow (Monday December 9th)
and is in the running to be the Xmas Number 1.
The song, “A Bridge over You”, is sung by doctors and nurses
in the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust Choir. The choir is
based at Lewisham Hospital which recently won a high court
victory over Jeremy Hunt, preventing the downgrading of the
hospital’s A&E and maternity units.
Dr Louise Irvine, of the National Health Action Party and chair
of the Save Lewisham Campaign said:
“Lewisham and Greenwich Hospital Trust choir’s poignant song
“A Bridge Over You” is not only a beautiful and moving song
but a wonderful celebration of the NHS and the incredible work
of NHS staff.”
“I urge all those who support the NHS to buy this single. What
better tribute to our NHS, and what better way of
demonstrating how much we value our NHS, than to make this
the Christmas number one.”
The mash-up of Bridge Over Troubled Water and Fix You is
accompanied by an emotional video featuring patients, doctors
All profits from the song will be going to charity – to Macmillan
Cancer Support and local health care charities.
The NHS Choir appeared on Gareth Malone’s TV show “Sing
While You Work”.
