Channel 5 is stepping inside the pioneering NHS Golden Jubilee University National Hospital in Clydebank, near Glasgow, to follow the dedicated staff and patients at one of the UK’s busiest hospitals for a brand-new series – The Heart Hospital. 

This 4x 60’ series was commissioned by Kit Morey, Commissioning Editor, Unscripted, Channel 5 and Paramount+. It will be produced by BBC Studios Factual Entertainment Productions and distributed by TVF International.

In 2024, heart disease continues to be one of Britain's biggest killers, taking one person every three minutes – but within the wards of The Heart Hospital there is hope, warmth and love.

In this dramatic and emotional new series, The Heart Hospital meets the specialist staff as they mend hearts – physically and metaphorically – providing a lifeline to patients and their loved ones in the toughest of times.

Kit Morey, Commissioning Editor, Unscripted, Channel 5 and Paramount+, said: “The Heart Hospital is a series about love.  Our hearts embody every range of emotion – joy, hope, excitement and at times, when they break, fear and vulnerability...

"But most of all, this incredible organ represents love and inside the NHS Golden Jubilee we capture that emotion in bucketloads. I am so looking forward to bringing this impactful new series to Channel 5’s viewers."

Adeline Ramage Rooney, Executive Producer and Creative Director for BBC Studios Factual Entertainment said, “We are thrilled to have gained such extraordinary access to the world-class heart unit of the NHS Golden Jubilee and to be making this life-affirming new series for Channel 5.

"The series will follow multiple patients’ emotional journeys in every episode – from relatively simple routine surgeries through to dramatic, life-or-death heart transplants. We’ll be there in the operating room as medical staff try to make miracles happen and loved ones wait anxiously for news.”

Sandie Scott, Director of Strategic Communications for NHS Golden Jubilee added: “We are delighted to be involved in making The Heart Hospital. It is very important to us that our patients and the public see the extraordinary quality care, compassion and dedication provided by Team Jubilee. As an NHS organisation, our team makes a difference every day to the lives of patients and families across Scotland and we thank everyone involved for allowing these important stories to be told.”

The Heart Hospital (w.t) is a 4 x 60’ series.
