Jackie Ashley investigates why hospital care at nights and at weekends is sometimes below par. She hears stories from the wards and shares her own experience as she investigates why standards can fall when the day shift goes home. Top managers, doctors and nurses, relatives and number crunchers help assess the state of an institution under pressure to change. They include David Dalton, Mike Marrinan, Sean Worth, Mark Porter and Julia Neuberger.
