Film details


Shahnaz Pakravan examines the closure of large hospitals and the transfer of care to smaller community-based centres. Filmed entirely in Newcastle, the programme reports on the closire of Newcastle General Hospital; looks at fund-holding GPs who embrace the new system and gives a portrait of health care in the city's deprived West End.
