The NHS In Crisis - Cause And Effect

The latest Byline Times podcast explores the crisis in the NHS and the factors which lie behind it.


We’ve got a Health Service which (in England at least) is riven by industrial disputes, involving nurses and ambulance drivers - with action pending by junior doctors.


Ambulance response times are the worst on record; more than half of patients attending A&E departments are waiting four hours or more to be seen – another historical low – and although waiting lists for routine surgery have improved slightly, they are still the second worst on record.


Byline Times has been covering the crisis in detail and host Adrian Goldberg hears from our Investigations Editor Sam Bright and David Oliver, an NHS consultant.

Produced in Birmingham by Adrian Goldberg and Harvey White.
