University Hospitals of North Midlands is delighted to announce it is to welcome back documentary makers for the third series of Channel 5’s critically-acclaimed series 999: Critical Condition.
Channel 5 is to be given unique access behind the scenes at Royal Stoke University Hospital once again as series three of the popular series will returns to our screens later this year.
As with previous series, the gripping documentary will be filmed by Brinkworth Productions who have extraordinary access to UHNM’s major trauma centre and other emergency departments, and will chart the vital interventions, actions and medical strategies that specialist consultants and teams experience while delivering immediate life-saving care.
Filming for the third series is expected to begin in June and will reflect the relentless fast pace of the hospital’s daily workload and show the reality of critical care in the vital first minutes after a patient arrives in a life threatening condition.
UHNM Director of Communications Lisa Thomson said letting the cameras in again was all about showing a wider audience what it takes to deliver life-saving time critical care in one of the country’s biggest and busiest major trauma centres.
She said: “999:Critical Condition has received national critical acclaim for its emotive and first-hand glimpse of how our teams make life-saving decisions under extreme pressure. It has been a fantastic opportunity to show people our exceptional staff, their hard work and dedication to providing the best care.
“The series isn’t a sugar-coated look at accident and emergency care; it is a true picture of the life-threatening injuries and conditions our teams deal with day in, day out and also captures the moments of absolute pride in the excellent care that we give to our patients and their families.”
“We are delighted that people will get another opportunity to have a real insight into the many specialities provided at Royal Stoke including major trauma, stroke, cardiology and neurology by the whole hospital team,” she added.
