As the documentary Hospital continues, three young lives being cared for at The Walton Centre neurological unit, come under the spotlight
This episode centres on The Walton Centre, a specialist neurological unit in Liverpool, next door to Aintree University Hospital.
The three patients it focuses on are a reminder of how cruel life can be.
Tom, 18, suffered a terrible brain injury in a car crash. He’s been on the ward for months and needs a bed in a specialist rehab centre, but one isn’t available.
Sophie, 22, suffered a mysterious virus 10 months ago that attacked her brain stem and left her struggling to breathe.
Finally, Michaela is undergoing her fourth brain operation due to a complicated condition that came on while she was training to be a nurse.
All three lives have been altered dramatically, but the centre has an amazing team trying their best to piece them back together.
