The Hospital

10:05pm Monday, October 25 on M4

The Hospital examines the impact of our young generation on the NHS. Surgeons, nurses, consultants and other hospital staff reveal how they feel about treating the endless stream of young people coming through the hospital doors, dealing with the repercussions of alcoholism, drugs, obesity, knife crime and sexually transmitted infections but at a crippling cost to the NHS. This episode illustrates the difficulties in treating young diabetics as staff struggle to make them reconcile the seriousness of their condition with their lifestyle choices.
