CELTIC MEDIA FESTIVAL
Critical: Inside Intensive Care is a remarkable observational documentary following staff and patients in Newport’s Royal Gwent Hospital. The Intensive Care Unit treats the sickest patients in the hospital and the medical team here work tirelessly to bring people back from the brink. This documentary offers a fascinating insight into the dilemmas facing the National Health Service in its 70th year. With an ageing population and advances in medicine the demand for Intensive Care beds has never been higher but like all parts of the health service the staff here are under pressure with their resources pushed to the limit.
