Presented by John Waite and Peter White.

NHS Top Ups

Asking whether people should pay for all of their NHS care if they choose to pay privately for drugs that their local hospital trust won't fund. Are top-up fees really compatible with the founding principles of the NHS and are they leading us towards a two-tier system where only the rich can afford new and expensive medicines?

With guests Jo Webber, Deputy Director of Policy at the NHS Confederation, Hamish Meldrum, Chairman of the BMA, Niall Dixon of the King's Fund and the campaigner Kate Spall.
