Series: Working in the NHS

Bristol’s NHS: Underfunded, under pressure and under the microscope.

The Bristol Cable is launching a series on the NHS in order to dig deeper – beyond the usual stories – and shine a light on what it’s like to work in our health service.

It’s common knowledge that the NHS is stretched after years of underfunding, on top of an ageing population and more expensive treatments.

During this crucial period, we will be delving inside the NHS to tell the stories of staff and volunteers to make sure the voices of those who work in the service are heard.
