NHS staff from across the country have come together to record a version of Michael Rosen’s poem ‘These are the Hands’ for STV News.

The verse was written by the English playwright and author in 2008 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the NHS.

Rosen, a former children’s laureate, is currently recovering from coronavirus.
