NHS Team in the News!

by Jenny Crane

Professor Roberta Bivins and Dr Jack Saunders from our team recently featured on BBC One’s Inside Out programme.  They discussed how our team have worked in archives – such as the Modern Records Centre, Coventry – and with local communities, including the social enterprise Health Exchange, to take a closer look at 70 years of the National Health Service in the West Midlands.  You can watch the programme again on the BBC iPlayer, and let us know what you think!

Roberta also recently appeared on Analysis on BBC Radio 4, in a programme entitled ‘Hospital Trust?’, which discussed whether public affection for the NHS is preventing it from becoming fit for the future.   Discussion on the programme is wide-ranging, considering the cultural significance of the NHS at the 2012 Olympics opening ceremony (and the bemused reaction of some American viewers …) , protests around proposed A&E closures, for example in Kidderminister, and more!
