Mark Thomas: Check Up: Our NHS @ 70
Tue 16 Feb • 7:30pm • Full £5 • Comedy
Mark Thomas’s Lockdown Live series continues with award winning show Check Up: Our NHS @ 70, in which Mark spent a month shadowing nurses, consultants and staff at the Imperial Group of NHS hospitals. From gastric sleeves to major trauma to dementia wards and back again, Mark was there to witness our NHS in action. This is the story he tells interspersed with interviews with… *gasp*…experts such as Professor Michael Marmot, the government expert on health inequalities, and the then Chief Medical Advisor Professor Dame Sally Davies. The result is a surprisingly emotional look at the state we are in.
This time, Mark is going back to some of those experts to conduct live interviews after the show about the state of our health. How is the NHS doing? Where does it go next? What do we need to do?
