Rachel Clarke & Henry Marsh Your Life in My Hands: A Junior Doctor's Story - Wantage Literary Festival

https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/wantage-literary-festival

What’s it really like to work for the NHS? Find out from former television journalist and documentary-maker Rachel Clarke who qualified as a junior doctor in 2009. After years of enduring the physical and emotional exhaustion of working as a hospital doctor, Rachel became a prominent activist in the junior doctors’ strike of 2016 before writing her book detailing the realities of working in the NHS. Rachel will be in conversation with the eminent neurosurgeon and best-selling author Henry Marsh.

Henry Marsh is one of the UK’s most eminent neurosurgeons. His work has been the subject of two major BBC documentaries: Your Life in their Hands (2003) and The English Surgeon (2009). Although retired from full-time work in the NHS he continues to work in the Ukraine, Nepal, Albania and Pakistan.
