BARNSLEY Hospital will be on TV screens again for a third series of the documentary Casualty 24/7.

The programme, which is filmed in the hospital’s casualty department, has been deemed popular, has meant Channel 5 has commissioned a third series.

Episodes are expected to air again during the prime time evening slot of 9pm.

The series will run for 12 episodes lasting an hour each and is expected to be on air next year.

Filming for the next series will take place during the hospital’s upcoming winter period and will feature a variety of patients being treated, showing the care that hospital staff provide every day.

A spokeswoman for the hospital said: “This is an excellent chance to showcase the hard work of the Trust and something it is proud to be taking part in.”
