New six part comedy Hospital People premieres on BBC One on Friday 21 April at 9.30pm.
Hospitals are mainly about the medical staff and the patients – but what about the other inhabitants? Hospital People follows the lives of Brimlington hospital’s inept DJ Ivan Brackenbury, its ambitious manger, Susan Mitchell, Hospital Porter and spirit medium Ian D Montfort and over-enthusiastic hospital chaplain Father Kenny Mercer – all played by Tom Binns.
It’s the moment that hospital manager Susan Mitchell has been waiting for: she has won the bid for Brimlington to host the Annual Regional Hospital Awards! Not only that but she has bagged a star host for the evening: Jeremy Lace (Alex Macqueen), a veteran of long-running fictional hospital drama Good Medicine.
Hospital Chaplain Father Kenny and resident Radio DJ Ivan vie for the Patients Choice Awards, while Ian is forced to face conventional medicine head on.
Hospital People Episode 1 (of 6) airs on Friday 21 April 2017 from 9.30pm-10.00pm on BBC ONE
