    The population timebomb: The idea that an ageing population is making it harder and harder to fund pensions, social care, and healthcare, as the number of older people grows in proportion to the working population. Jeroen Spijker, senior research fellow at the School of Social and Political Science in the University of Edinburgh, explains why he thinks the risk has been overblown.

    Also, Michael Kidd, current president of WONCA – the world organisation of family doctors - talks about the pressures on primary care, and how he would like to attract the best medical talent to the specialty.
