Brain Hospital: Saving Lives is to return to Channel 5 for a second series in 2014.
The first run saw series one average at 1.1 million viewers with a 5.7% audience share.
The factual documentary series follows some of the Walton Centre’s most impressive, ground-breaking surgical stories as each episode follows two or three patients, each suffering from a different neurological condition.
Thanks to medical advances in the past 20 years, we now have the ability to tackle tumours, save road traffic accident victims, limit epileptic seizures and control Parkinson’s tremors using neurosurgical techniques.
Of the 30 specialist neuroscience centres operating in the UK, the Walton Centre in Liverpool is at the forefront, in terms of its highly experienced staff and cutting edge technology.
It’s the only NHS Neuroscience Trust in the UK and in this series The Walton has given full access to their staff and facilities.
Brain Hospital: Saving Lives series two will air next year.
