About the Show

This three-part, groundbreaking medical series takes viewers right into the heart of the life-and-death decisions faced daily by staff and families at the world-renowned Great Ormond Street children’s hospital. Children arrive with complex medical challenges, meaning staff constantly work at the frontiers of medical knowledge and practice, often developing radical new treatments. This intimate and moving observational series has unique access to three of the hospital’s key areas; the Cardiac Unit, the Intensive Care Unit and the Renal Unit. It follows the searingly honest exchanges between top medical experts and the families themselves, as they balance the pain of the extremely sick children against the quality of life they’ll gain if the interventions are successful and the longer term value of discovering new and potentially life saving techniques.
