Junior Doctors: Your Life in Their Hands
It's back! With a brand new set of junior doctors, there's plenty of drama on the wards of Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.
We follow their first ever shifts in some of the busiest and most challenging departments in the hospital as they struggle to deal with the transition from medical student to junior doctor.
Whilst juggling the long hours, life and death situations, difficult patients and endless paperwork, they desperately try to keep up the energy to maintain their own personal lives. You'll want to laugh, you'll want to cry...and at times you'll definitely want to look away!
We can't wait to see what's in store for our brand-new group of eight bright-eyed and bushy-tailed medics. From today we'll be revealing two new doctors a day right here on this very blog...so keep your eyes peeled to find out more about the new recruits.
