Featuring true cases, characters and events taken from the London Hospital records, nurse's ward diaries and intimate memoirs, these gritty medical series show the lives – and forbidden romances – of pioneering doctors and nurses a hundred years ago.

 

Run with a will of iron by formidable Matron Eva Luckes, the hospital in London’s poverty-stricken East End deals with anything from infectious diseases like syphilis, pneumonia and tuberculosis to shocking injuries of the times such as self-abortion injuries, victims of anarchist bombings and an East End gang member wounded in a shooting.

 

For the volunteer nurses and doctors – including Nurse Russell, Dr Culpin, Nurse Bennett, Dr Walton and the surgeons Hurry Fenwick and cocaine-addicted Dr Dean – work is tough and relentless. Relationships between staff might be strictly forbidden, but romance continues to blossom away from the Matron’s gaze. In a time of great change, the hospital constantly faces up to the future.

 

Pioneering radiographers work with the perilous x-ray equipment, chloroform is scandalously introduced as an anaesthetic and the use of revolutionary new electro-mechanical devices are instigated. Equally gritty and heart-warming, these series bring the Edwardian hospital compellingly to life – illuminating the dramas and romances of a fascinating medical era.
