The NHS and me
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the previously announced Rob Delaney is unfortunately unable to participate in this event. We are delighted that Adam Kay will now share the stage with broadcaster, journalist and writer, Caitlin Moran.
The NHS is our greatest achievement as a civilised nation, but its health is in serious jeopardy. The system is stretched atom-thin and there is a crisis in recruitment and retention, with over 100,000 vacant posts.
Writer of million-copy bestseller This is Going to Hurt, comedian and former doctor Adam Kay will be in conversation with author and NHS advocate Caitlin Moran.
As Caitlin wrote in Moranifesto, we all come to an NHS waiting room in the end. Together, Adam and Caitlin will discuss the universality of a system under threat, how we’ve got to today, and what the future might look like.
After the talk, Adam Kay will be signing copies of This is Going to Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor, which is available now from the National Theatre Bookshop. When you buy your copy from the National Theatre Bookshop, you support the work of the NT.
Tickets: £15 - £45
