Cheesy, hapless hospital radio DJ Ivan Brackenbury, who has a habit of playing inappropriate songs, is given the chance to broadcast on Queen Elizabeth Hospital Radio (QEHR). He is assisted by hospital porter Stan, but hindered by Edwina, the evil hospital manager who is looking for an excuse to close down the radio station and replace it with a pay-per-view TV service.

Ivan's future as a hospital radio broadcaster hangs in the balance when he is locked in the studio with a pregnant patient who is about to give birth.
