Surgeon Charlie puts his heart into a ballad for the NHS

Professor Charlie Knowles, the singing consultant surgeon at Barts Health NHS Trust, has written and recorded a ballad for the NHS to raise money for NHS Charities Together – ‘because they deserve it’.

He says: “I acknowledge that this song will not cheer you up. Rather, I hope it serves to acknowledge the bravery of staff in the NHS and many other services who are working despite the risk to their health, and for which some have made the ultimate sacrifice. I hope that all funds raised will go toward families of those affected by loss during the pandemic.”

Professor Knowles, a leading light in our charity Bowel & Cancer Research and a keen country singer and songwriter, hopes to raise £10,000.
