Contributions - Dear NHS: 100 Stories to Say Thank You, Edited by Adam Kay

Stew has a story in this book of stories to say thankyou to the NHS.

 

Compiled and edited by Adam Kay, the author of the bestselling This Is Going to Hurt, this powerful, heartfelt anthology features one hundred stories from a remarkable group of contributors – including Stephen Fry, Dame Mary Beard, Sir Paul McCartney, Kate Atkinson, Kit de Waal, Bill Bryson and many more – sharing their gratitude to the 1.4 million heroes of our NHS.

All author and publisher profits from this book will go to NHS Charities Together to fund vital research and projects, and The Lullaby Trust which supports parents bereaved of babies and young children.

Great writers, artists, entertainers and thinkers talk about their experiences of the NHS and explore what it means to them in this unique collection curated and edited by Adam Kay, author of the multi-million-copy bestseller This Is Going to Hurt. With pieces by Emilia Clarke, Peter Kay, Sir Paul McCartney, Stephen Fry, Dawn French, Sir Trevor McDonald, Graham Norton, Sir Michael Palin, Naomie Harris, Ricky Gervais, Sir David Jason, Dame Emma Thompson, Joanna Lumley and many many more, Dear NHS is a thank you and a celebration of our health service and all who work within it.

The NHS is our single greatest achievement as a country. No matter who you are, no matter what your health needs are, and no matter how much money you have, the NHS is there for you. In Dear NHS, 100 inspirational people come together to share their stories of how the national health service has been there for them, and changed their lives in the process. By turns deeply moving, hilarious, hopeful and impassioned, these stories together become a love letter to the NHS and the 1.4 million people who go above and beyond the call of duty every single day – selflessly, generously, putting others before themselves, never more so than now.

They are all heroes, and this book is our way of saying thank you.
