July 5th is the 70th anniversary of the foundation of the NHS. In celebration of all the good things that the NHS does for us, we’re going to be timing Season Two of Poems for doctors to finish on the anniversary itself.

Season Two will show eight new video readings of doctors reading poems about health, medicine, and experience from the Scottish Poetry Library’s ‘Tools of the trade’ anthology.  You can hear about why some of the poems were chosen in this teaser trailer.

There are some special moments to come – we hope they might make you pause for thought, perhaps sometimes shed a tear, and maybe occasionally break out a broad smile.

Please enjoy, and thanks for watching.
