Hospital 24/7 is a medical documentary series broadcast in the United Kingdom on BBC One.

Filmed at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff, Wales, the third biggest hospital in the UK, the series follows the professional dramas at the hospital, portrays the real-life sagas of the people who work there and shows some of the biggest challenges facing the NHS.[1]

Series[edit]

Series one (2009)

The first series was filmed for a week in autumn 2008, and aired on four nights from 12–15 January 2009[1]

Series two (2010)

Filming continued in summer 2010 and three episodes of Hospital 24/7 Revisited were broadcast in August to follow up stories from the first series.[2]

Series three (2011)

The third series was filmed in early 2010, and aired on five consecutive nights for a week from 10 January 2011.[3]
