The BBC’s cameras will show viewers the reality of working inside a hospital as the world faces a global pandemic – in its Hospital series.
Following the two-part Hospital Special: Fighting Covid-19 which aired earlier this year, this series will revisit Royal Free Hospital London as it tries to recover from the coronavirus pandemic.
The 6-part series will show the challenges faced by staff in the NHS, such as waiting lists being predicted to double by the end of this year.
We took a look at the hospital filming location – here’s everything you need to know about the BBC series!
