The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

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”.
