I WROTE A LETTER – on Stephen Hawking

Professor Stephen Hawking’s recent coming out in The Guardian on the privatisation and Americanisation of the NHS has clearly touched the privatisers’ nerve judging by the speed and vitriol of Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt’s response. That a figure of Hawking’s standing has publicly raised the ‘Americanisation’ question is a notable moment in the campaign to save the NHS.

A letter I wrote following my filming for GROUNDSWELL at Hawking’s Royal College of Medicine address last Saturday has been published today in The Guardian.
