The NHS: Past, Present and Future with Adrian Massey at Cambridge Literary Festival

7 Apr 2019 – 10.00 - 11.00

Available to all, and free at the point of use: Nye Bevan’s vision for ensuring Britons received equal treatment revolutionised the health of a nation and became one of the greatest achievements of the 20th century. Seventy years on, though, and the NHS is creaking, suffering from endless cuts and little impact on a growing, and ageing, population.

Sick-Note Britain author Adrian Massey is joined by Phil Whitaker (Chicken Unga Fever)  and nurse Molly Case (How to Treat People: a Nurse’s Notes) to discuss a diagnosis and treatment plan.

Chaired by Dr Steve Gillam, Visiting Senior Fellow, Institute of Public Health, University of Cambridge
