JUNIOR doctors at Royal Liverpool Hospital make their debut on the small screen tonight.
The working lives of eight of the hospital’s medics were followed for a new BBC 3 series of the medical fly-on-the wall documentary Junior Doctors: Your Life In Their Hands.
The Royal is the latest to take part in the series.
The medics featured are all in their first and second year.
Among the moments captured on camera is a prisoner escaping from his hospital bed and hiding out in the roof space.
He is later arrested by the police.
Kiera Vaughan, 26, who was born in Wirral, is one of the junior medics being featured on the programme.
She said: “I’m filmed mainly in the emergency department, undertaking tasks like stitching wounds and patching people back together after nights out that have gone wrong, caring for people who are very unwell.”
Junior doctor Emily Phipps, 25, from Leicester, added: “The crew followed me carrying out lots of routine tasks and also some more unique moments – such as one of my patients, who was a prisoner, managed to escape police custody and climb into the roof.”
The series will be shown on BBC Three from tonight (January 17) at 9pm.
