The work of one of Wales’ centres of excellence for cancer treatment is the subject of a new documentary series to be shown on ITV Cymru Wales next year.
Filming has begun for Hospital of Hope, a portrait of Velindre Cancer Centre in Cardiff, capturing the human stories behind the cancer statistics and diagnostics.
Focusing on the patients and staff who make Velindre such an inspiring and safe place to be treated, the four-part series is produced for ITV Wales by Green Bay Media.
From the uplifting and emotive stories of the patients as they undergo treatment to the pioneering work of the staff, each 30-minute programme will capture the highs and lows inside the centre.
The series will also feature the pioneering Oncology project by Cardiff University School of Medicine as young medics closely follow cancer patients for a greater understanding of the impact of cancer on patients and their relatives.
The series is made in association with On Par Productions, in partnership with Velindre Trust and Cardiff University Medical School for ITV Cymru Wales.
