Geordie Hospital | Series Preview (Channel 4)
Based across Newcastle's hospitals, this uplifting new series celebrates the extraordinary work performed by NHS staff, following world-class medics and dedicated support teams as they pull together, working all hours to save and transform lives forever.
In this first episode, consultant transplant surgeon Colin performs a live kidney transplant on Kimberly, using an organ that her older sister Debra has bravely donated. The head chaplain Katie brings staff welfare hound Poppy Jingles back to work for the first time in 18 months, after being 'furry-loughed' due to Covid.
Children's heart consultant Emma changes the device that powers four-year-old Kit's mechanical heart, meaning he can leave the hospital grounds for the first time in months. And ear, nose and throat consultant surgeon Isma removes a tumour from 76-year-old Terry.
The full series will be available to stream or download for free on All 4 from 17 Jan, following the transmission of this episode
