Tonight | The Hospital: In the Deep End on SBS and SBS on Demand

The Hospital: In the Deep End on SBS – News headlines constantly tell us our public health system and its workers are at breaking point.

But what’s it really like to work on the hospital frontline? In this ground-breaking series three Australian icons with a unique connection to the health system go beyond the headlines to find out.

Host of Gardening Australia Costa Georgiadis, food writer and TV host Melissa Leong, and actor Samuel Johnson are thrown out of their comfort zones and onto St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney’s frontline.

The Hospital: In The Deep End sees Costa, Melissa and Sam put to work for a week at one of the country’s busiest and most well-known hospitals.

From drug and alcohol treatment, heart transplants, mental health wards and brain surgery, nothing is off limits. They will meet hospital staff at their most capable and patients at their most vulnerable.

The pressures are intense, the outcomes at times uncertain, and the care factor is turned up high.

Episode Three: The Future

Costa, Samuel and Melissa take on roles in St Vincent Hospital’s transplant, mental health and reconstructive surgery departments to see how they’re coping with the pressures of today, and what insight they provide for the future of our health care.
