In this programme the audience are able to put their questions to politicians from the three main parties: Simon Hughes MP, the Liberal Democrat Health Spokesman; Ann Widdecombe MP, Shadow Health Secretary; Frank Dobson MP, Secretary of State for Health. The questions cover such topics as the current waiting lists for treatment, the future of the NHS, funding for public health services, private healthcare and the question of 'rationing' of treatment, according to age and geography.
