Lakin McCarthy and Mark Thomas in association with Nick of Time Productions
Written and Performed by Mark Thomas
Directed by Nicolas Kent
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 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?
