NHS Voices is a team of NHS workers, led by Dr Katie Rogerson and NHS communications worker, Joe Blunden. They are using the anniversary of the NHS to celebrate the dedication of NHS staff and say, ‘thank you’ to them.
On Friday 6th July, NHS Voices are releasing a special Band Aid-style recording of The Beatles song, “With A Little Help From My Friends”. The release will occur the day after the NHS turns 70.
The proceeds from the single will be going to NHS Charities Together. This is a group of more than 100 NHS charities that raise funds for medical equipment and research. They have come together to raise awareness of the work and support NHS charities provide to the NHS.
The single is being produced by award-winning producer Jon Cohen and will feature over 50 pop stars. Amongst the celebrities recording at the London’s Abbey Road Studios are boy band Blue, The Saturdays’ Una Healy, Girls Aloud’s Kimberly Walsh and Elbow’s Guy Garvey.
The choir of nurses, doctors, physiotherapists, porters and administrators will be joined by Rick Astley, Tony Hadley, Beverley Knight, Mark King, Nile Rogers, Coleen Nolan, Myleene Klass, Marina and the Diamonds and JLS’s Aston Merrygold.
