Mark Thomas: Check Up
Our NHS @70
Directed by Nicholas Kent
Mark Thomas is 54, the NHS is 70, and 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?
Supported by the Wellcome Trust.
Approx. 85 minutes (no interval)
Suitable for ages 14+ (programme includes strong language)
