BBC2 have been filming behind the scenes footage at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH), which is made up of the Queens Medical Centre and Nottingham City Hospital. The programme, which has returned to television for its third series, has been highlighting some of the major challenges that the NHS are currently facing, including significant winter pressures as a result of one of the worst flu seasons on record.
Episodes so far have highlighted how NUH professionals have responded to the increased pressures whilst maintaining an excellent standard of care, and the pioneering and life-saving procedures carried out on a daily-basis.
The School of Health Sciences are very proud to offer their students the opportunity to gain valuable first-hand experience with NUH as one of their partner trusts. This includes nursing, midwifery and physiotherapy students, many of whom have secured employment with NUH after graduation.
Professor Joanne Lymn, Head of the School of Health Sciences, said: “The latest series of Hospital which was filmed at NUH in January and February demonstrates the compassion, humanity, courage and sheer commitment to providing the best quality care that our local Trust staff provide. It is really heartening to know that this is the practice environment which many of our students will experience during their training with us, we can be assured that they are being exposed to the best the NHS can offer.”
