NHS Golden Jubilee's heart services to be showcased in new documentary series

The pioneering heart services of NHS Golden Jubilee will be highlighted in a brand new Channel 5 documentary series starting Monday 3 June 2024.

The Hospital: Life on the Line provides an unparalleled behind-the-scenes look at the lives of staff and patients as they combat a range of heart conditions.

Broadcast over 4 inspiring episodes, the programme takes viewers on a journey, showcasing the skill and dedication of our specialist staff as they mend hearts – both physically and metaphorically.

From routine procedures to life changing heart transplants, the series captures the emotional journeys of multiple patients and their loved ones.

Heart disease remains one of Britain's most significant health challenges, but in the wards of NHS Golden Jubilee, there is an abundance of hope, warmth, and love.

Sandie Scott, Director of Strategic Communications for NHS Golden Jubilee, said: “We are delighted to be involved in making 'The Hospital: Life on the Line.'

“It is very important to us that our patients and the public see the extraordinary quality care, compassion, and dedication provided by Team Jubilee.

“As an NHS organisation, our team makes a difference every day to the lives of patients and families across Scotland, and we thank everyone involved for allowing these important stories to be told.”

Kit Morey, Commissioning Editor, Unscripted, Channel 5 added, “We are thrilled to have gained such extraordinary access to the world-class heart unit of the NHS Golden Jubilee. The series will follow multiple patients’ emotional journeys in every episode—from relatively simple routine surgeries through to dramatic, life-or-death heart transplants.

“We’ll be there in the operating room as medical staff try to make miracles happen and loved ones wait anxiously for news.”

The Hospital: Life on the Line starts on Monday 3rd June, 9pm on Channel 5 and My5.
