DR PHIL HAMMOND: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, NHS? 

“One of the most entertainingly subversive people on the planet.” The Guardian

Nye Bevan's beautiful baby is 70 this year, but will she make a ton? A decade of austerity with a Brexit cherry on top has brought her to her knees. Do we just keep doing what we're doing, or is it time for a radical rethink? We claim to love the NHS but then systematically abuse her by abusing ourselves. And nobody likes picking up the bill. Dr Phil Hammond looks back to the start of the NHS and forward to the future. Can we still afford universal high-quality care for all? Will technology save us, bankrupt us or kill us? A Fitbit that keeps you fit or scares you senseless with continuous real-time cancer mutation monitoring. And will iPads ever be able to wipe arses? Come celebrate the NHS and laugh all your worries away. Or vice versa. Batteries not included.

Dr Phil Hammond has worked in the NHS for 31 years and loves it so much he still does. He is also a broadcaster, journalist, author, campaigner and comic.

“If Dr Phil were a medicine, you should swig him by the litre” The Times ****

“Hugely enjoyable, well crafted, poignant stand up” Broadway Baby 2016 ****

“Hammond is a passionate rabble rouser and impressively positive…. the perfect health secretary” Fest Magazine 2016 ****

“Very funny, honest, clever and moving. Passionate about the NHS” Dr Clive Peedell, founder National Health Action Party
