St Richard’s will feature in BBC 2 documentary

St Richard’s Hospital will feature in a new eight-part BBC2 series, showing what life is like in the NHS during a ‘normal day’.

The first episode, which will be broadcast tonight at 9pm, documents the story of Lynn Huartson who travelled from Kent for a weight-loss operation at St Richard’s hospital, which is recognised as a natinal centre of excellence for bariatric surgery.

The programme tells the story of how a routine operation leads to much bigger challenges.

The series aims to show the work of NHS staff on a normal working day.
