Happy birthday NHS! Here's my poem for NHS70, commissioned by Northern Ireland Confederation for Health and Social Care (NICON), with support from Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
It's all about people, about everyone who uses the NHS, and the amazing staff who provide the care and support for the nation. Enjoy.
I'll be reading it at a special celebratory event in Stormont on the day. It's also going to be shared with all 70,000 NHS staff in Northern Ireland. So slightly nervous!
A big thanks to Heather Moorhead and Cliona McCarney at NICON and Damian Smyth at ACNI for their support and belief to make this happen.
