NHS Golden Jubilee's cutting-edge heart services will feature in a Channel 5 documentary.

New series The Hospital: Life on the Line will start Monday, June 3 at 9pm and provide an intimate look at how staff and patients cope with various heart conditions.

There will be four episodes, showcasing the expertise of medical staff performing everything from routine procedures to heart transplants.

The production highlights the emotional journeys of patients, while also spotlighting the widespread impact of heart disease within Britain.

Sandie Scott, director of strategic communications for NHS Golden Jubilee, said: "We are delighted to be involved in making 'The Hospital: Life on the Line.'

"It is very important to us that our patients and the public see the extraordinary quality care, compassion, and dedication provided by Team Jubilee.

"As an NHS organisation, our team makes a difference every day to the lives of patients and families across Scotland, and we thank everyone involved for allowing these important stories to be told."

Kit Morey, commissioning editor, Unscripted, Channel 5, said: "We are thrilled to have gained such extraordinary access to the world-class heart unit of the NHS Golden Jubilee.

"The series will follow multiple patients’ emotional journeys in every episode—from relatively simple routine surgeries through to dramatic, life-or-death heart transplants. We’ll be there in the operating room as medical staff try to make miracles happen and loved ones wait anxiously for news."
