Discussion

The Age of the Cure: Healthcare in the 21st Century

The Spectator hosted a lively discussion on healthcare in the 21st century with Alastair Stewart, journalist and ITN newscaster, and a special guest panel.

The rapid development of new technology is changing the way we live and how our illnesses are cured. Given our ageing population and the rise in age-related diseases such as cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer’s, what role can innovation play in improving our health, as well as the NHS and society as a whole?

This panel discussion was organised by The Spectator, and initiated and funded by Pfizer Ltd.
