Series 3 of BBC2 documentary Hospital is coming to Nottingham
The third series of the BBC2 documentary that has been commended
across the NHS - 'Hospital' - will be filmed at Nottingham
University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH).
Work has already started on the third series of 'Hospital,'
which is coming to Nottingham after two series of the acclaimed
documentary at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust in London.
The six-part series will go behind the scenes at Queen's Medical
Centre and Nottingham City Hospital to show how staff are managing
and responding to the competing pressures and demands on a daily
basis to ensure patients get the best possible care. It also aims
to show how staff are working with partners across the health and
social care system to respond to changing needs, against the
backdrop of the NHS's toughest ever financial challenge.
Laura Skaife-Knight, NUH's Director of Communications and
External Relations, said: "Taking part in 'Hospital' was a
carefully considered decision, but in the end an easy one to make.
NUH has an ambition to be the NHS leader in openness and
transparency and giving access to the cameras to follow the stories
of our patients and staff is one of the ways we will achieve
"What is unique about 'Hospital' is that it goes beyond the
headlines and gets under the skin of the challenges our staff
experience every day and very often the difficult decisions they
face in their efforts to do what is right for patients, their loved
ones and carers.
"People working across the NHS can relate to these stories, many
of which are replicated in many hospitals and healthcare settings
up and down the country. We have incredibly dedicated staff working
across our hospitals, many leading the way in their fields
nationally; in some cases internationally - and yet too often their
jobs are made all the more difficult because of the imperfect
systems in which they are operating at both Trust and system
Series 3 will be filmed at NUH in January and February 2018 and
is expected to be broadcast in Spring 2018.
Lorraine Charker-Phillips, Head of Programmes for Label 1, said:
"When we first met the team at NUH we were really impressed by
their pride, passion and enthusiasm for the work that they do. We
very much look forward to making the third series of 'Hospital'with
