Episode 5: Healthy at Home

Summary

With access to the frontline workers patrolling the streets all the way up to the leaders making strategic decisions in the City Hall, the final episode examines how the NHS is trying to relieve pressure on hospitals by caring for patients in their own homes. Cameras follow community matrons Sandra and Julia on their morning rounds, and their first patient of the morning is found at home in pain

Review

This hard-hitting series has provided a sobering insight into the challenges facing public services — not just in West Yorkshire, but nationwide. Now, in an episode rescheduled from earlier this month, it draws to a close by bringing the aftermath of the pandemic to vivid life.

Community nurses find a patient in pain and learn that, due to Covid, he has been waiting two years for a hospital appointment. We also see how domestic violence surged hugely during lockdown, but most distressing of all is a suicidal male. When it takes the crisis team 80 minutes to arrive, police must step into the breach. However, the camaraderie, civic pride and dedication of frontline workers offers a ray of hope.
