Filming of BBC 2 Hospital documentary has now ended

Filming for the third series of the BBC2 documentary, Hospital, at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH) has now ended, after 8 weeks.

The production company, Label1, who is making the six-part series for the BBC, have been filming across our hospitals since 2 January and they finished their filming on 23 February 2018. 

Thank you

We would like to thank all of our patients, carers, visitors and staff who have taken part in the filming and who have given their time to support the film crews during their work.

Label1 are now busy editing the hours and hours of film and will be keeping in contact with individual patients and their families who were filmed during the last couple of months about using their stories in the series. Further information is available in the FAQs.

The series is due to be broadcast in the Spring. Watch out for more details about when you will be able to see the new series.

Background

In July 2017 it was announced that following the first two series of the acclaimed documentary at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust in London, filming for the new six-part series would move to Nottingham.

The series goes behind the scenes at Queen's Medical Centre and Nottingham City Hospital to show how staff are managing and responding to the competing pressures and demands on a daily basis to ensure patients get the best possible care. It also aims to show how staff are working with partners across the health and social care system to respond to changing needs, against the backdrop of the NHS's toughest ever financial challenge.

Laura Skaife-Knight, NUH's Director of Communications and External Relations, said: "Taking part in 'Hospital' was a carefully considered decision, but in the end an easy one to make. NUH has an ambition to be the NHS leader in openness and transparency and giving access to the cameras to follow the stories of our patients and staff is one of the ways we will achieve this.

"What is unique about 'Hospital' is that it goes beyond the headlines and gets under the skin of the challenges our staff experience every day and very often the difficult decisions they face in their efforts to do what is right for patients, their loved ones and carers.

"People working across the NHS can relate to these stories, many of which are replicated in many hospitals and healthcare settings up and down the country. We have incredibly dedicated staff working across our hospitals, many leading the way in their fields nationally; in some cases internationally - and yet too often their jobs are made all the more difficult because of the imperfect systems in which they are operating at both Trust and system level."

Lorraine Charker-Phillips, Head of Programmes for Label 1, said: "When we first met the team at NUH we were really impressed by their pride, passion and enthusiasm for the work that they do. We very much look forward to making the third series of 'Hospital' with them."
