Phil Whitaker & Isabel Hardman | Fighting For Life: How to fix the NHS

Winter Festival 2023

Marking the 75th anniversary year of the NHS with strikes across the sector, endless A&E waiting times and delayed operations, the institution is in continual crisis. Two writers deeply invested in fixing our beloved healthcare system are Phil Whitaker, a practising GP, and political journalist Isabel Hardman. Join them as they explore the NHS’s history, painting a damning portrait of political interference in medical treatment, and considering the struggle for its future.

In conversation with the New Statesman’s Britain Editor Anoosh Chakelian.
