Darkly comic series that offers a glimpse inside a world a million miles away from traditional hospital dramas. This is the dull, dreary, dog end of the health service with paperwork to fill in, bottoms to wipe and the drama played out in a thousand tiny acts of revenge and kindness, shining a light on the way workplace relationships play out and mapping out the life of a hospital through six shifts (five days and one night) on B4 ward.
Kim, Den and Pippa struggle through another normal day on B4. Kim has an unknown female to occupy her, Den has Hilary to cope with and Pippa has a ward round. New patient Mrs Fyvie is admitted, but it's her daughter Beedy who needs to be dealt with.
