Day 5 in our PBS Gift Guide is this moving anthology of poetry from the NHS, These Are the Hands, edited by “The Emergency Poet” Deborah Alma, and GP Dr Katie Amiel with a foreword by Michael Rosen. All proceeds go to NHS Charities Together.
Above all these poems are about our shared humanity. They are about the compassion and care that lie at the heart of the NHS and in all our lives. They also serve as a stark reminder of the human cost of trying to offer compassionate care in a system that is underfunded and understaffed, and the importance of showing the same compassion and support to the staff we depend on to hold the NHS together.
