Could cancer break the NHS?

Britons are generally living longer, healthier and happier lives. But as we grow older, more of us will have to battle long-term health conditions. One in two of us will get cancer. Early screening and diagnosis are key to survival rates, but the UK lags behind. Is our struggling health service up to this monumental challenge? Or is the NHS – our so-called ‘national religion’ – destined for the scrapheap? Join Alastair Stewart and a special guest panel to discuss all this and more.
