RTE’s new Autumn schedule is released soon and sure to get us through the faint memories of sun screen, slushies and over sized hats. Keeping Ireland Alive: The Health Service in a Day is one such programme that is sure to keep us entertained.
Every day more than 200,000 people access the health service in Ireland, 200 babies are born, and 80 people die. All of this is explored in the new five part documentary series which chronicles Ireland’s health system over a 24-hour period . Filming was carried out over a 24-hour period on May 31 this year, and 75 camera crews given access to all aspects of the health service. Over the course of filming they captured the experiences of a diverse range of staff and a steady stream of patients as they accessed care that day. We covered full post on this 5 part documentary.
Keeping Ireland Alive: The Health Service in a Day starts on RTÉ One on Monday, August 29th at 9.35pm and will air throughout September.
