Mark Thomas: Check Up – Our NHS @ 70

Directed by Nicholas Kent Supported by The Wellcome Trust

Mark Thomas is 54, the NHS is 70, 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 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?

"Infectious wit and political fury"

The Guardian

"Offers up a cornucopia of facts and fascinations... the laughs come, regular as heartbeats, for the duration... This is a show that comes from the guts"

The Telegraph

"Perfectly balanced between laugh-a-minute entertainment and hard-edged political commentary"

The Scotsman
