Synopsis:
Screened in 1983, when the consequences of NHS spending cuts were becoming increasingly apparent and for-profit culture loomed large, 'The Nation's Health' detailed the dismaying experiences of a young, newly qualified female doctor; it also questioned what Newman sees as the inherently damaging doctor-patient relationship, and dramatised a disturbing loss of humanity within the medical profession. As well as spending several months as a trainee nurse, closely observing | procedure in wards and admin departments to gain insight into his subject, Newman cast qualified nurses and actors with first-hand experience in medicine.
The result is an investigative drama filmed with documentary-style precision, which is impassioned and acute in its portrayal of what many saw as a closed, monolithic institution in terminal decline.
