BBC Two has commissioned a sixth series of the award-winning documentary series Hospital.

The commission comes off the back of the critically acclaimed two-part Hospital Special: Fighting Covid-19, which was filmed at the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust from the first day of lockdown and over the peak of the pandemic. The two special episodes followed the human stories of staff and patients alike as they grappled with the extraordinary challenge of the virus. 

The new 6x60' series, will return to the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust to chart the next stage of the story, as services across the NHS are reinstated following the impact of Covid-19. 

With exclusive access, Hospital will continue to take viewers up close to the story, as the Royal Free London, a world-leader in the treatment of infectious diseases, tries to resume a normal service in the wake of the pandemic. With waiting lists predicted to double by the end of this year and many patients nervous of returning to hospital for urgent treatment, staff face many new challenges in rebuilding the health service. 

Filmed and broadcast within weeks, Hospital tells the story of the NHS in unprecedented times, and none more unparalleled than now. The new series will air on BBC Two this autumn. 

Patrick Holland, Controller, BBC Two, said: “Hospital Special: Fighting Covid-19 was one of the most candid, challenging and brilliant programmes to have documented this crisis. It has been our privilege to reflect the work of the staff and the lives of the patients at the Royal Free London and I am delighted to see the series return later this year.”
