Children's Hospital At Xmas

About the Show

About the Show

This one-off special takes us to the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital as it gets ready for the most magical time of the year – Christmas! Presented from the heart of the hospital by Lorraine Kelly, we’ll feature all the most exciting, uplifting and heart-warming moments from the run up to the hospital’s Christmas. We’ll see a wide array of Christmas-related casualties brought into a busier than usual paediatric A&E department; from toddlers who’ve eaten Christmas decorations to burns caused by spilt mulled wine. We’ll meet patients admitted to the hospital wards for operations just before Christmas, and we’ll be there to witness the fantastic moment when they receive the news they really want to hear – that they’ll be able to spend Christmas at home with their family. For the children who can’t make it home, we’ll see the hospital staff and its celebrity patrons pulling together to make Christmas the very best it can be for their young patients. We’ll be with the stars of Manchester United and Coronation Street as they visit the wards distributing presents, making the dreams of dozens of children come true. And we’ll be there as Dr. Malcolm Lewis sheepishly exchanges his stethoscope and scrubs for a Santa suit. Plus, we’ll catch up with the ongoing treatment of our bravest and best loved patients, as they and their parents battle on through the festive season against their continuing medical problems. And we’ll share the joy of former patients, Dolly Thompson and DJ Lockley, as they spend their first ever Christmas away from the hospital, at home with their parents. Capturing all the drama, tension, magic and excitement of Europe’s largest children’s hospital at Christmas time, this special promises to be moving, uplifting and life-affirming.
