All-heart surgeon hopes to hit Xmas top spot in the medical charts

A heart consultant has put down his scalpel and picked up a guitar in a bid to make Christmas number one. Dr Bill McCrea, 61, has reunited his group the Wiltshire Heart Throbs in an attempt to crack the festive charts and raise money for his hospital’s seasonal appeal. He wants to boost Brighter Futures’ Radiotherapy Appeal closer to its £2million target.
