‘HAPPY BIRTHDAY NHS?’
Nye Bevan’s beautiful baby is 70 this year, but will she make a tonne? A decade of austerity with a Brexit cherry on top has brought her to her knees. Do we just keep doing what we’re doing, or is it time for a radical rethink? We claim to love the NHS but then systematically abuse her by abusing ourselves. And nobody likes picking up the bill. Dr Phil looks back to the start of the NHS and forward to the future. Can we still afford universal high-quality care for all? Will technology save us, bankrupt us or kill us? Come celebrate the NHS and laugh all your worries away. Or vice versa. Batteries not included.
Dr Phil Hammond has worked in the NHS for 31 years and loves it so much he still does. He is also a broadcaster, journalist, author, campaigner and comic.
