Poems for the NHS London launch
January 17, 2019, 7:00 PM – 10:30 PM GMT
This is the London launch of Poems for the NHS, an anthology including established poets (such as multiple award winners Mimi Khalvati, Penelope Shuttle and Carol Satymurti), up-and-coming poets and new voices, all marking 70 years of the NHS. The reading will include poems about receiving life-saving treatment, about the people who deliver that treatment with empathy and resilience, about friends and family and their intimate journeys and about the impact of both ill-health and the effect of the interventions aimed at curing it.
