Isabel Hardman: The Twelve Battles that Made Our NHS image

Isabel Hardman presents Fighting for Life, a gripping, provocative exploration of the NHS, told through the most critical moments in its 75-year history.
In this book, the bestselling journalist and author of Why We Get the Wrong Politicians, cuts through the sentimentality and sloganeering on all sides of the political spectrum. Packed with gripping stories from the people at the beating heart of the NHS – its nurses, its doctors, its patients and the politicians who decide its fate – this is the essential book for understanding our NHS, and who we are as a nation.
Isabel Hardman is the Assistant Editor of the Spectator and also presents Radio 4’s Week in Westminster.
Chaired by Caroline Greenwood-Dower
