The work of Devon-based Siobhan, who cares for patients with dementia, and Bath nurse Ren, who has developed a close bond with David Thraves. Paralysed from the neck down, David can only move around by using his chin to operate a wheelchair, but that doesn’t prevent him leading an active social life and holding down a day job. Last in the series.
There are more than 10,000 district nurses across the country, visiting more than 2 million people every year. For many these are the unsung heroes of the NHS. They develop relationships with patients that can last for years on end and as they see them in their own homes, they often become a huge part of their lives and cornerstones of the local community.
The Nurse is a flagship documentary series for ITV in the UK in which we follow district nurses on their rounds, visiting different homes across the country. The show presents intimate, affectionate portraits of their diverse patients and their inspiring ability to grasp life in the face of adversity.
This is a heart-warming snapshot of health in our homes: from newborn babies to the challenges of old age. These nurses are not just there to provide vital healthcare but are often the only company that patients living in isolation get – caring for the same patients over many years, becoming more than just nurses but part of the family.
Produced by Shine TV, The Nurse is a unique documentary series that shines a light on the unsung heroes of a nation.
