Following the dramatic highs and lows of life in Ireland's largest trauma centres

Trauma is an ambitious medical documentary series giving viewers an unprecedented look into the high pressure and high-stakes world of trauma and medical emergency wards in Ireland. The series follows the progress of several patients, from admission to hospital and as close to the end of their medical treatment as possible. Hospital staff talk intimately about working in such an adrenaline-fuelled environment while patients and their families share their experiences first-hand. Featuring highly emotive patient stories, the series highlights the high risk and exceptionally skilful work carried out by the medical teams around the clock, every day and every night, in the busy wards of Ireland’s largest trauma centres.
