Gavin Francis & Devi Sridhar: The Cost of Health
The result of a pandemic and an ageing UK population: record waiting times for treatment. Conversely, medical advances are saving and prolonging lives – albeit ever more expensively. If the NHS is broken, how can we afford the cure? Writer and GP Gavin Francis, author of Free For All: Why The NHS Is Worth Saving, presents a passionate defence of NHS principles, while global public health expert Devi Sridhar offers an international perspective. Chaired by Peter Mathieson, vice chancellor of the University of Edinburgh.
