Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital in Crumlin is the largest paediatric hospital in Ireland. Here, life and death are a daily reality. Filmed over eight months, this four-part series observes paediatric care from the point of view of the medical practitioners as they grapple with ethical decisions, complex cases and rare conditions. Each episode is centred around a department – Cardiology, Intensive Care; Oncology; and Dermatology/Plastics. With unprecedented access, Crumlin provides a sensitive but searingly honest portrayal of the challenges faced by the medical teams.
