MUSICAL MEDICS’ CHRISTMAS BID
IN between tending the sick, Dr Harriet Nerva has turned music promoter, launching a social media campaign to get a Christmas hit.
BridgeOverYou, a mash-up of Coldplay’s FixYou and Simon & Garfunkel’s BridgeOver TroubledWater, sung by the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Choir ( right), was runner-up on Gareth Malone’s TV show SingWhileYou Work in 2013.
Now Cambridgebased Ms Nerva, 26, who represents junior doctors on a British Medical Association committee, wants people to buy the song to support the work of the NHS. “We are facing a harsh winter and feel the government has let us down,” she said.
But if you want to back her bid to make it to No 1, she said, delay buying it “until the week before Christmas”.
