Pilot - Hospital People

Comedy set in a fictional hospital. This mockumentary follows the lives of porters, hospital radio DJs, chaplains and managers - the hospital staff who could be called 'non-essential', though they would all strongly disagree.

Further details

A new manager, Susan Mitchell, takes over the beleaguered Brimlington hospital. She comes from a commercial management background and many of her changes are focused on making money. She expands the little newsagents, puts parking prices up and installs a new 'point-of-care' patient entertainment system that costs £10 for 24 hours. How will these big decisions affect the little people - and should half of these people even be in a hospital anyway?
