Nurses will follow the women and men at The Cardiff & Vale University Health Board. The 16,000 staff includes 6,500 frontline nurses who work in departments from A & E through to breast care and even on weekend nights, out on the Welsh capital's often chaotic streets. Their job is the real front line of the medical profession - highly skilled, urgent, bloody and above all vital.

This refreshingly honest series drills deep into the reality of nursing, a job that is diverse and challenging. We follow a group of nurses as they go about the frenetic daily business of saving lives and providing care to some of the city’s most vulnerable citizens. What does it take to do a job like this and what kind of person can cope with the pressure?
