The final part of the series following the patients, families, and clinical teams of Great Ormond Street Hospital aired on Tuesday 19 June at 9pm on BBC2.
Tonight’s episode ‘Experimental Surgery’ follows the work of the clinical teams as they care for three patients whose medical conditions are so complex that their care is right at the boundary of the team’s knowledge and experience. This is an incredibly moving programme, and at times challenging to watch but it demonstrates the complexity of the work the NHS is capable of.
For some children, there is no proven clinical option available. While the risks are high, clinical teams and families together make the difficult decision to go ahead with experimental procedures.
