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. Is the NHS, which lags behind other countries on early screening and diagnosis, 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.
