Secret Life of the Hospital Bed
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.
