Make the NHS the Christmas Number 1

An NHS tribute song mash-up of Coldplay and Simon & Garfunkel has beeen released and is in the running to be the Christmas 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 and nurses.

All profits from the song will be going to Macmillan Cancer Support and local health care charities.

The NHS Choir appeared on Gareth Malone’s TV show “Sing While You Work”.

Please download the song – and help it reach number one.
