CGiii Comment

Welcome to the NHS...!

Service providers and service users...the providers give, the users take and - really - do take the NHS for granted. 

This BBC production does not beat around the bush, it's a grim, dark glimpse into the world of a junior doctor...

Over-worked, bullied from above [by those God-like consultants] and - often - under-appreciated [by the takers]...this is not a recruitment drive that the staff-strapped NHS would endorse! does make for good television...

We will keep on watching, it's a very good start...but, will it end in tears!?!


The(ir) Blurb...

Set on labour ward with all its hilarity and heart-lifting highs but also its gut-wrenching lows, the show delivers a brutally honest depiction of life as a junior doctor on the wards, and the toll the job can take back home.
