Tonight’s episode comes from Liverpool Women’s Hospital, the last remaining trust in the country that cares for women and babies.

In a hospital that is missing two consultants, things are obviously hard for the staff as well as the patients. Among those patients are Violet, a newborn baby who needs to have a life-saving operation at the age of just 36 hours old. There is also Kate, who has already had a double mastectomy and needs further treatment as her cancer spreads during her pregnancy; and Rebekah, at 19-year-old who needs a tumour removed but the operation is delay by staff shortages.

Hospital is on BBC Two at 21.00.
