Fighting for Life: The Twelve Battles That Made Our NHS and the Struggle for Its Future

  • This event has passed.
Sunday 8th October 14:20 - 15:20 | LitFest Marquee

Award -winning journalist Isabel Hardman will tell the gripping story of a beloved institution through the people who keep it alive – its nurses, its doctors, its patients, and the politicians who decide its fate. Drawing from interviews with key decisionmakers, from former Prime Ministers and Health Secretaries to NHS bosses, as well as access to the patients and keyworkers at the beating heart of the health service, she will reveal with trademark incisiveness a chequered history that is by turns uplifting and alarming. Cutting through sentimentality and sloganeering on all sides of the political spectrum, she will show us how our NHS really works, and what it means for our future.
