    ARCHIVE: Dr Phil Hammond: Happy Birthday NHS?

    About

    Nye Bevan’s beautiful baby is 70 this year, but will she make a ton? 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? A Fitbit that keeps you fit or scares you senseless with continuous real-time
    cancer mutation monitoring. And will iPads ever be able to wipe arses? 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.


    Can’t join us for the show on Sun 29 April? Phil Hammond returns to Bristol with a show at the Redgrave Theatre on Sun 18 November. Find out more on their website here.
