Filmed at Northampton General Hospital, this documentary series is a stark portrayal of what our NHS is facing each and every day. Too many patients, too few staff, not enough beds and no money.

It equals a system at breaking point. When it will break nobody knows, but at some point it will – and the consequences of that are unthinkable.
