An acclaimed, hard-hitting series examining the failings of the NHS in the early 1980s, The Nation's Health was scripted by award-winning writer G.F. Newman. As relevant today as it was forty years ago, Newman spent several months as a trainee nurse to better able him to write the dismaying, sometimes harrowing experiences of a young, newly qualified doctor.

Against a background of NHS cuts, the idealistic Dr Jessie Marvill joins the surgical staff at St Clair's, a large teaching hospital. As her training takes her through different departments, her illusions are shattered one by one amid an ego-driven culture – at odds with many of her colleagues, Jessie increasingly comes to question the wisdom and ethics of her chosen profession.
