Mark Thomas - Check-Up: Our NHS @ 70

Celebrating the 70th anniversary of the founding of the NHS, award-winning theatre maker, comedian and activist Mark Thomas takes a look at our NHS. What state is it in, where it's going, and what we need to do to keep it?

The approximate UK national average life expectancy is 84. If Mark makes it to 84 the NHS will be 100 - what will they both look like?

Based on a series of interviews with leading experts in and on the NHS and residencies in hospitals and surgeries, Thomas, working with director Nicolas Kent, uses his own demise to explore the state we're in. What's going right, what's going wrong and how does it get better?

Recorded at the Theatre Royal, Wakefield.

First released: Thursday 31st October 2019
