Se­cret Life of the Hos­pi­tal Bed

TV Times - - Film Guide -

To­day sees the re­turn of the se­ries that of­fers a ‘bed’s-eye view’ of the ex­pe­ri­ences of NHS pa­tients around the coun­try. In Barns­ley A&E, Michelle has been ad­mit­ted hav­ing suf­fered a sec­ond stroke at the age of 42. In a day surgery unit in Birm­ing­ham, 25-year-old So­phie is hav­ing an op­er­a­tion to save her finger af­ter be­ing at­tacked by a dog while out de­liv­er­ing leaflets. And in Leeds, keen dancer Anna, 14, is about to find out whether a pro­ce­dure to straighten her leg has been suc­cess­ful. With the pres­sure on beds greater than ever, it’s a timely re­minder of the amaz­ing work that goes on in our over-stretched NHS hos­pi­tals. Con­tin­ues week­days.
