TLTP 019 – Not Doctored

Ooh, matron! It’s The Last Tuesday Project!


This month is a listener’s questions special! We offer thanks to Daniel Pott for his two splendid questions. We ended up vetoing the first question on radiosensitivity (in spite of our interest in the subject), and went on to look at the Weekend Effect. Are you really more likely to die if you are admitted to hospital on a weekend than on a weekday? Would the infamous “7 Day NHS” fix such an issue? How much is fact, and how much is politics?


Our next TWOsday episode, Episode 19a, will be released on Tuesday 13th February 2018.


Do you like what we do and want to show your support? Well, you can now give us a helping hand via Patreon! Just go to If every listener gave us a dollar a month, we will be able to furnish Tuesday Tower with all sorts of hipster paraphernalia, as well as get Shaun a Hipstermatic 3000 beard trimmer for his birthday. Please donate – he’s in dire need of a trim.
