Brand spanking new series chronicling an insider's view of the profession in 21st-century Britain, beginning at St Mary's Hospital in Manchester, home to one of the busiest maternity units in the country. Gill Barras runs the triage desk and is in charge of determining which expectant mothers need to be admitted to the ward and which can be sent home, while matron Rachel Coppock tries to allocate staff and resources to provide patients with the best possible care. During a late shift, a couple whose baby has not been moving seek assistance, and an expectant mother faces an agonising wait for a bed to become available. The series is narrated by Rupert Houseman.
