People's History of the NHS


Five Questions: Dory Davies

Dory Davies, a retired landscape gardener, offers us a patient's perspective on the NHS. From breast lumps to a 'hangman's fracture', she remembers NHS care across her lifespan, and what it has meant to her. 'Stretched', underfunded and pressed for time, the service is still a key part of being British for Davies. Hers is an important voice, and one that speaks to a situation many of us will face, with grace and optimism we can only hope to replicate.
