Episode 1 of 3

New series following a batch of recently qualified doctors as they walk on to the wards of the hospitals in Northern Ireland's Western Health Trust for the first time.

In the first episode we meet Dr. Kevin Harkin who, after five years study away in Liverpool, is happy to be back home and on the wards in Altnagelvin. One of his first reactions to no longer being a student doctor is that on the ward, when nurses and relatives are looking for a doctor, they mean him – and he doesn’t need to go looking for a more senior figure.

Appearing alongside Kevin in this episode is London-born Dr Josh Walker, who had never been to Northern Ireland before taking up a placement in the Western HSC in August 2018. Josh relishes the prospect of being 'a wee English boy in Derry' and adapting to his first job in the NHS.
