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.
With Den and Hilary flirting behind closed doors, an incident on the ward is all it takes to trigger the blame game. Pippa has good news on her faecal forum paper and the presence of Peter Healy lightens her mood. Paperwork and pragmatism once again prevail as the staff on B4 clockwatch their way through the day.
