Welcome to the official website of the National Health Singers. We are a collective of NHS staff, singers, musicians and public supporters of the National Health Service, from all regions of the UK. We are one united national choir, but we have multiple regional choirs who meet regularly.
We started our choir to unite the British public with their NHS workers. We aim to empower EVERYONE to fight for their NHS. We’re singing for it’s survival and we need your help.
We aim to raise awareness of the current threats to the NHS, whilst at the same time boosting morale, increasing positivity and ultimately protecting our National Health Service!
RAISE AWARENESS OF ISSUES
BOOST MORALE + POSITIVITY

We were honoured to perform as part of an NHS super choir with colleagues and friends from The Barts and Lewisham choirs on Channel 4’s Stand Up 2 Cancer back in October 2016. The evening was awesome and a fitting tribute to David Bowie to be able to support Boy George as he sang Starman and[…]
LET’S UNITE AND DO SOMETHING POSITIVE!!! The National Health Singers are recording and releasing a new single to protest about imposition, cuts and privatisation of your services.

Striking is not something we want to be doing, nor something we enjoy. It is a last resort to fight the imposition of the unsafe and unfair contract the government are forcing on Junior Doctors. The strikes of the past two days have been more serious as a full walk has occurred. Prior to striking, we were[…]
The National Health Singers were honoured to be invited to sing at the ‘Get Vocal for the NHS’ concert in Greenwich last Thursday evening (21st April 2016). Here are a few videos of our performance.

The East Midlands branch of the National Health Singers were proud to support the East Midlands Blue Light Vigil event on Wednesday 6th April in Nottingham’s Market place.

The London choir were out in force for the last industrial action on the 9th and 10th of March, with the aim of supporting our colleagues on the picket and engaging with the public. We wanted the public to hear us!!! What exactly is this junior contract is about and why do we feel so[…]
The National Health Singers sang at support Junior Doctor rallies in London and Nottingham this week. Both events were very well attended with great speakers and amazing passion to support us in the fight against the unsafe and unfair contracts the government are imposing on Junior Doctors in England.
