Trivia

Five of the Sixteen Healthcare Professionals portrayed in this film are played by real-life employees of the National Health Service in the UK. Only one, Kathy Haig, had any experience of acting, and the director encouraged the others to simply improvise their dialogue as they would in real life to add realism to the scenes. See more »

Excellent film
27 April 2017 | by cathyoatesSee all my reviews

I didn't know quite what to expect of this film but was extremely impressed and engrossed in the film and it says a lot for the acting that I cared very much about what happened to them all. At the preview it was stated that "if it just saves one life" it will have been worth it and it is certain to achieve much more than that.
