A SOUTH Yorkshire actress is helping highlight festive misuse of hospital services – by playing a woman who wants doctors to carve her frozen Christmas turkey.

The character of Anastasia Ryan, aged 33, from Barnsley, grumpily notices people with drink-related injuries at an A&E – but sees nothing wrong with expecting medics to perform the ‘public service’ on her oversized bird.

Anastasia is set for internet stardom after starring as Sandra in the NHS comedy video with Noorul Choudhury, a former contender on BBC1 show The Apprentice.

The short clip, called Turkey Tales, aims to hammer home the message of how festive drinking piles pressure on the NHS.
