Shown on BBC Two Scotland, 27th June 2008.
Ahead of the 60th anniversary of the NHS, BBC Scotland takes us on a journey through the remarkable, and often forgotten, history of the Scottish health service. Prime Minister and former patient Gordon Brown joins staff both past and present with incredible stories to tell and the BBC's Scottish health correspondent, Eleanor Bradford, reminds us why the NHS would be very different without Scotland's input and asks what the next 60 years might hold.
From the first couple of minutes of the programme:
'The NHS in Scotland was born sixty years ago. During this healthcare revolution, Scottish doctors have discovered cures for deadly diseases, [...] made big breakthroughs that have changed the face of medicine, and the NHS has provided pioneering surgery and world-class care, free of charge, to patients from all walks of life. [...] But the cost has been huge, and demand is still rising. So tonight, we're celebrating the birth of Scotland's NHS, but will we soon be mourning its death?'
