After a year on the streets treating outreach patient, Max Pemberton is back in the relative comfort of hospital. This time running between elderly care and the dementia clinic to A&E and outpatients. No longer inexperienced (Max and his doctor friends can now tell when someone is actually dead), they are on the front line of patient care for better or worse.
In the midst of an NHS still under threat - some things never change - there are committed and caring doctors, big issues, hope frustration, huge societal changes affecting the entire health system as well as the general drama of everyday life in a big hospital, from biscuit wards to resus. It's not like television - this is real - there are no easy answers - but The Doctor Will See You Now will give you hope that there are enough good docors asking the questions.
