Filed under: Edinburgh Fringe 2016 — Dr. Phil @ 12:00 pm


Your two urgent appointments with the Doctor: 3:05 pm - Life and Death (But Mainly Death) Dr Phil reflects on life, the death of two dads and his mum still gate- vaulting at eighty. And he considers his own death. Is it possible not to kill yourself before your time, yet die gently when your time comes? Can we live and die with pleasure, purpose, compassion and modest medical interference? Laugh and plan your exit. 10:05 pm - Dr Phil’s NHS Revolution Laugh, love, shout and reclaim our NHS. Ditch the market, cherish the carers, fund the frontline, avoid the harm, kill the fear, tell the truth, use the evidence, inspire, collaborate, recover, die gently. Are you in? With guest appearances from Dr Margaret McCartney, inspirational Glasgow GP, writer and broadcaster. Phil Hammond is an NHS doctor working in chronic fatigue, an investigative journalist for Private Eye, a BBC Radio Bristol presenter, comic and author of ‘Staying Alive, How to Get the Best from the NHS’ and ‘Sex, Sleep or Scrabble?’ Phil has appeared on Have I Got News for You, Jack Dee’s Helpdesk, The News Quiz, The Now Show, Question Time, Trust Me, I’m a Doctor, Long Live Britain, The One Show and Countdown.
