The new documentary series has been commissioned by RTÉ and is primed to be broadcast in October.
Ms Carrie Nathan of Independent Pictures told the Medical Independent (MI) the series is largely focused on trauma but may bring in other aspects of care.

The Keeping Ireland Alive series ran over five parts and garnered highly positive comments and reviews from healthcare professionals, as well as TV review columnists and on social media.
It involved 75 camera crews being sent to 70 locations nationwide, with filming carried out over a 24-hour period. According to RTÉ, crews were given access to all aspects of the health service, with the co-operation of the HSE, hospitals and community services throughout the country.
