This episode takes a look at the NHS outside of the hospital environment, and through a vast patchwork of experiences reveals the health system's role in British lives from cradle to grave.
Featuring a Yorkshire District Nurse who spends her day changing dressings and tubes for elderly patients, a maverick GP in Everton who takes in addicts and abusive patients who have been rejected by other surgeries, and a pair of West Midlands paramedics who compare their nightshift to that of a mini-cab service. In London, the air ambulance crew rush to the scene of two serious accidents, whilst in Birmingham, a medical student makes his 16th sperm donation.
