Introduction to the book launch.
Contributors and supporters, friends and members of the public met up in York Library at the book launch to hear songs, the cart play about the history of health care in York and of course listen to the poems.
The winner Michelle Diaz and second prize winner Margaret Adkins, were able to attend and the third prize winner Simon Williams was with us in spirit on screen. He had recorded his entry because he had been unable to attend due to prior a engagement. Deborah Harrington from Public Matters, awarded the prizes after a short introduction about her background and previous experience in NHS matters.
The cart play was followed by an unexpected sing along and an opportunity to have a ‘selfie’ taken with an NHS 70 frame.
