Review

Our Score
After seven consecutive spoofs of other movies, the Carry On crew returned to the world of work for this lively comedy that virtually takes up from where Carry On Nurse left off. The timing of another hospital picture couldn't have been better for Sid James, who was genuinely bedridden for much of the production. Consequently, most of the workload falls upon Kenneth Williams as a sneering consultant, Jim Dale as the clumsy Dr Kilmore, and Frankie Howerd, who makes an impressive series debut as a fussy faith healer. However, Charles Hawtrey steals the show, experiencing the pangs of a sympathetic pregnancy.

Summary

A popular doctor is sacked after a misunderstanding ruins his reputation, prompting the furious patients to stage a revolt against the luckless medic's strait-laced superiors. Meanwhile, the hospital head has his own problems after becoming the unlikely romantic target of a strict matron. Comedy, with Frankie Howerd, Jim Dale, Sid James, Kenneth Williams, Charles Hawtrey and Hattie Jacques.
