Acclaimed BBC documentary series Hospital will be moving location to Nottingham for its next series.

More than two million viewers tuned in to the first two series of the acclaimed show, which laid bare the realities of working in the NHS.

Now work has already started on the third series at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH), after the first two series were filmed at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust in London.

The series will be set at the trusts Queens Medical Centre and Nottingham City Hospital sites, with the aim of showing how staff work across health and social care boundaries to respond to changing needs of patients.

Third series to air next Spring

More than two million viewers tuned in to the first two series of the acclaimed show, which laid bare the realities of working in the NHS.

Now work has already started on the third series at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH), after the first two series were filmed at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust in London.

The series will be set at the trust’s Queen’s Medical Centre and Nottingham City Hospital sites, with the aim of showing how staff work across health and social care boundaries to respond to changing needs of patients.

Third series to air next Spring

The bulk of filming for the six-part series will take place in January and February next year, and is expected to broadcast in Spring 2018.

NUH director of communications and external relations Laura Skaife-Knight said: ‘What is unique about Hospital is that it goes beyond the headlines and gets under the skin of the challenges our staff experience every day and very often the difficult decisions they face in their efforts to do what is right for patients, their loved ones and carers.

Relatable

‘People working across the NHS can relate to these stories, many of which are replicated in many hospitals and healthcare settings up and down the country.

‘We have incredibly dedicated staff working across our hospitals, many leading the way in their fields nationally; in some cases internationally – and yet too often their jobs are made all the more difficult because of the imperfect systems in which they are operating at both trust and system level.’
