Hospital documentary series to return to Merseyside


BBC Two has confirmed that Label1 will be producing a fifth series of Hospital.

Filmed across several Trusts in Liverpool, the programme will air next year.

“Hospital is essential viewing. It has been a game-changing series for BBC Two, winning an RTS Award and bringing the audience the most urgent and important stories from the frontline of the NHS today,” said Clare Sillery, Head of Commissioning, Documentaries.

“I am delighted we’ll be returning to Merseyside for this series and I’d like to thank the hospital Trusts, staff and patients across Liverpool for their extraordinary commitment and openness in making the series.”

Series 4 achieved an audience average of 2.2m for each episode. It also achieved critical acclaim and is credited with a 2,218% surge in the number of people signing up to be organ donors.

“Hospital encapsulates BBC Two’s mission. The best film-making, about the biggest stories affecting people, brought to the audience with urgency and great humanity. I’m delighted to announce its return,” added Patrick Holland, Controller, BBC Two.

The series has previously filmed at the Imperial College Healthcare Trust London and Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust and last year, across six Trusts in Liverpool.

Filming will take place from late October, concentrating on clinical areas, patient stories and behind the scenes access.

“We are honoured and excited to be returning to Liverpool to make the fifth series of Hospital with the Trusts, staff and patients throughout the city. We look forward to revealing compelling new stories that shine a light on the extraordinary work of the NHS,” said Jackie Waldock, Executive Producer, Label1.
