'These Are the Hands': feature Harrogate doctors and nurses

  • Harrogate District Hospital has taken part in a short film, raising money for the NHS Charities Together appeal.
  • 'These Are the Hands' features the Intensive Care Unit team.
  • It also includes archive footage of the NHS at work through the ages plus more recent images.

Doctors and nurses from Harrogate District Hospital feature in a new short film, helping to raise money for the NHS Charities Together appeal.

'These Are the Hands' features historic footage of healthcare and the NHS from the BFI National Archive, as well as contemporary footage of NHS staff and volunteers currently on the front lines of Covid-19.

The Intensive Care Unit team from Harrogate District Hospital is one of many to feature in the short film.

Actor Iain Glen (Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey) reads ‘These Are the Hands’, the famous poem written by Michael Rosen (We’re Going On a Bear Hunt) to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the NHS.

 

It's been produced by the Event and Media Communication Associaton (EVCOM) and the BFI.

Ellie Orton, Chief Executive of NHS Charities Together, also said:

“This is an incredibly powerful film that underlines just how vital the NHS is to our society. It also clearly shows just how important supporting the frontline staff and volunteers is at the moment and into the future. Our COVID-19 Appeal aims to do just that, and I’m sure this film will help to spread the message about why that’s so important.”
