The groundbreaking series returns, this time from the Nottingham University Hospital Trust.

Filmed in January and February this year, when the NHS was facing unprecedented pressures, it’s a shocking, heartbreaking, frustrating but vital and brilliant piece of TV.

Keilan is 12 and suffering from scoliosis, which is worsening so fast his body is crushing itself.

And yet Keilan’s surgery has been cancelled twice due to a lack of intensive care beds.

At the other end of the scale is 86-year-old Mavis, who has dementia but is medically fit enough to leave her hospital bed.

She can’t free up that precious bed, however, because there is nowhere for her to go. A stark reality check of a system that’s broken.
