Happy birthday, NHS! That was the message from the prime minister last week, as she announced an extra £20bn of funding for the NHS in England by 2023. But is that enough? And where will the money come from?

There’s been talk of a Brexit dividend’ – does that mean the infamous battle bus promise has come true? Or will some of us have to pay more tax to keep our NHS on life support? And whatever happened to fixing our broken social care system?

This week, Ayeisha Thomas-Smith is joined by Sarah Bedford, head of social policy at NEF, and Andy Cowper, comment editor of the Health Service Journal.
