Description

July 2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the National Health Service Act coming into effect. Owen Sheers has created a virtuosic ‘film-poem’ to coincide with the broadcast on BBC Wales of his film with Pip Broughton. ‘To Provide All People’ is the intimate story of the NHS in British society today. Depicting the life of one hospital over the course of 24 hours, it charts an emotional and philosophical map of what defines the NHS against the personal experiences that lie at the heart of the service; from patients to surgeons, porters to midwives.
