Weight Loss Ward (Series 2)

This three-part documentary series returns to Sunderland’s Royal Hospital, where its specialist ward for the morbidly obese treats patients who are seeking surgery to battle their weight gain.
Focusing on the busiest NHS obesity unit in the UK, Weight Loss Ward follows the personal stories of the patients, their journeys to losing weight, possible reasons behind their weight gain, the reality of gastric surgery and its consequences.
The series also gives a unique insight into the challenges faced by the ward’s 50 specialist hospital staff in getting patients to lose weight, to keep it off, and the tasks they face in performing surgery on them.
