The NHS is under ever-greater financial pressure, and this year has brought the strongest warnings yet that the service cannot cope with the demands being placed on it. The situation may get even worse if the many overseas NHS staff decide to leave. Can the experts on the economics of the health service and the public finances diagnose how serious the NHS financial crisis really is?

The panel, chaired by Hugh Pym (BBC), includes Adriana Castelli (University of York), Kath Checkland (University of Manchester), Paul Johnson (Institute for Fiscal Studies) and Carol Propper (Imperial College London/University of Bristol).

Bristol Festival of Economics is presented in association with
