In the second series of the highly acclaimed show, BBC Three follows eight newly qualified junior doctors at the Chelsea and Westminster hospital in London as they embark on their foundation years in some of the busiest and most challenging departments.
The new recruits are Lucy, Priya, Andy, Aki, Milla and Sameer who have just qualified and are in their first foundation year. Ben and Amieth are new to the hospital too but have 12 months experience under their belt and are starting their second foundation year.
Andy starts his first shift on Trauma and Orthopaedics and he battles with taking blood from a patient. Milla finds herself thrown in at the deep-end with a night shift where she has the daunting responsibility of certifying her first death. Over in Accident and Emergency Amieth has to hit the ground running in order to keep up with the relentless pace of the emergencies.
Meanwhile in the Acute Admissions Unit Aki struggles with first day nerves and hospital protocol but gets the chance to prove himself when he is asked to assist with a complex procedure.
Elsewhere in the hospital Lucy’s skills are put to the test when she has to rush to the aid of a patient who has gone into peri-arrest. Finally, Milla and Amieth find themselves on the same crash team trying to save a patient following a cardiac arrest.
It’s a tough introduction to life as a doctor, and they have to learn fast.
