Nye Bevan’s beautiful baby is 70 this year, but will she make a ton? A decade of austerity with a Brexit cherry on top has brought her to her knees. Dr Phil Hammond charts the course of the NHS from 1948 to as long as she lasts. Come cheer the heroes, boo the villains and devise your own plan to save the NHS using only broccoli, ideas and comedy. What could possibly go wrong?
Full price tickets: £12
Concessions for NHS workers: £10
Bar open from 6.30pm & there will be a 20 minute interval during this performance.
We claim to love the NHS but then systematically abuse her by abusing ourselves. And nobody likes picking up the bill. Dr Phil looks back to the start of the NHS and forward to the future. Can we still afford universal high quality care for all? Will technology save us, bankrupt us or kill us? A Fitbit that keeps you fit or scares you senseless with continuous real-time cancer mutation monitoring. And will iPads ever be able to wipe arses? Come celebrate the NHS and laugh all your worries away. Or vice versa. Batteries not included.
Dr Phil has worked in the NHS for 31 years and loves it so much he still does. He is also a broadcaster, journalist, author, campaigner and comic.
