2023: the 75th anniversary of the NHS, a vital part of our lives under constant threat. Three authors join us to discuss the challenges facing the system. Polly Morland’s profile of a country doctor, A Fortunate Woman, emphasises the importance of medicine in regional communities; Dr Annabel Sowemimo’s Divided argues for the decolonisation of healthcare; and Dr Phil Whitaker’s What Is a Doctor? offers a roadmap for the future of the NHS. Chaired by Sarah Brown.
