BBC2 comedy series shining a spotlight on mental health

Tagged In:  Mental Health
Those working in mental health services may be interested in a new four-part comedy series which will air tomorrow night (10th March) at 10pm on BBC2.

Nurse’ is the latest sitcom from comedian Paul Whitehouse and David Cummings, and is an adaptation of the popular Radio 4 series focusing on a range of characters (many of whom are played by Whitehouse) who are visited by Elizabeth, a community psychiatric nurse (Esther Coles). 

The series will follow Elizabeth as she makes home visits to her patients including the elderly Herbert, former rocker Ray, clinically obese Graham and agoraphobic Billy. The series highlights the emotional impact that each patient has on Elizabeth, and both Whitehouse and Cummings are keen for the series to make people think harder about the issues surrounding mental health.

In a recent interview with The Independent, they stated that they want to “educate people” about mental health issues whilst also raising awareness of the vital work undertaken by community mental health nurses.
