Fairly entertaining hospital drama.
11 August 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio) – See all my reviews

The plot of this British film concerns the troubles of a hospital as they try to take care of their patients. Acting is fairly good, and there are a few excellent scenes, and could (I said COULD) have been the inspiration for "EMERGENCY!". If only the print that I had seen wasn't so scratchy. It seems that this movie isn't very well known, if you're reading this and you like this type of film, go out and track it down.
