LSE Language Centre, in collaboration with the Department of Philosophy and Scientific Method and the LSE Students' Union Drama Society, present an evening of analysis and discussion of health service resource allocation and medical ethics. Professor Alex Voorhoeve, who specialises in this field, as well as publishing and broadcasting on the topic, discusses these issues together with Dr Anna Smielewska, an NHS professional from Addenbrooke’s Hospital, University of Cambridge. The evening will culminate in a staged production of Shaw’s 1906 play The Doctor’s Dilemma. A top Harley Street consultant, who has a cure for tuberculosis but only a very limited supply of the drug, must choose between saving from certain death a well-meaning and selfless yet mediocre East End GP or an artist whose works possess genius though he himself is described as a ‘scoundrel’.

The tickets for this event are FREE and do not need to be booked in advance. Entrance will be on a first come first served basis.
