In March 2020, as the country entered lockdown, Hospital revealed the frontline of medicine at the Royal Free London. Now, two years on, we revisit the trust as it implements its recovery programme and does its part to tackle the longest waiting lists in the NHS’s history.

Filmed during the first months of 2022, we follow the emotional journeys of the patients starting to receive their long-awaited surgeries and the staff who treat them as the trust grapples with the challenge of recovering from the impact of the last two years.
