The NHS Crisis: Can It Be Fixed?

The NHS is in a critical condition. As hospitals struggle with soaring demand, increasing waiting times and their biggest ever workforce crisis, Panorama investigates what can be done to fix the health and care system. We’re an ageing population, living with more long-term
health conditions. After years of underfunding, the Covid pandemic has exposed the scale of the crisis. The BBC’s social affairs editor, Alison Holt, assesses the innovation and new ways of working that might offer the NHS the lifeline it needs. She also meets patients getting hospital treatment at home, and the doctors, nurses and care staff desperate for change.
