Channel 4 has commissioned a brand-new popular documentary series, Geordie Hospital, which is a Curve Wales production.
A 6 x 60 series, based in Newcastle, home to one of the biggest and best Hospital Trusts in the UK. This series follows Newcastle Hospitals’ incredible staff through a shift, from world class medics saving and transforming lives, to the support teams who make it possible.
Featuring a joyful, returning cast from porters to surgeons, dental nurses to sewing room ladies, as they pull together to deliver excellent care with their unique Geordie warmth and sense of humour.
Channel 4’s Commissioning Editor, Rita Daniels said. “This is an exciting brand new 8pm series that features an incredible collection of inspiring, passionate and dedicated hospital staff. In each of the six episodes you can clearly see their dedication, deep felt connection and enthusiasm for the patients they meet every day.”
“It was incredibly humbling to film with the fantastic staff who are at the heart of Newcastle Hospitals. Through their eyes we experience the beauty and complexities of their patients and the NHS.” Camilla Lewis, CEO Curve Media.
Dame Jackie Daniel, Chief Executive of The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust commented: “We wanted to show the very best of Newcastle in a warm and engaging way – focussing on our world class clinicians as well as our extremely valued support staff who are all equally important in caring for our patients.
