New observational documentary Nurses Down Under has been commissioned for W.
Nurses Down Under shows viewers the realities of working on Sydney’s frontline, with exclusive access to nurses working across three of Sydney’s major hospitals.
From A&E disasters to major theatre operations, to newborn babies on maternity wards and time critical organ transplants, the series will show the world of medicine through the eyes of the nurses working in the major Australian city.
Nurses from Australia working alongside British and Irish ex pat colleagues share their personal and extraordinary stories about the high and lows of providing round-the-clock urgent care for patients.
Nurses at different stages of their career from those just starting out, to nurse practitioners, to midwives and organ donor specialists will be featured.
Channel director of W Adam Collings commented: “Now more than ever do we need to celebrate frontline heroes across the globe, so I’m thrilled to have this brilliant documentary series coming to W later this year.
“We may be thousands of miles away from Australia, but there’s possibly many more similarities in this environment than we might think.”
He added, “Nurses Down Under will mix emotional stories with lighter moments that our viewers know and love, making this a perfect new addition to the schedule.”
The ten-part series of Nurses Down Under, produced by ITV Studios Australia, will air later this year.
