Summary Every day in Australia over 40,000 patients are in hospital. While medicine tends their bodies, hospital chaplains tend their souls. Over eight episodes we follow our chaplains' journeys alongside the patients and their families at three major hospitals. They are Catholic, Protestant, Muslim, Jewish and Buddhist. Regardless of their faith, they all meet the same challenges - to help make sense of the mystery of illness, pain, suffering and despair. This series offers a unique bedside view of the daily life and death drama of hospital life through our chaplains' eyes.This week at Liverpool Hospital in Sydney's south-west Anglican Chaplain Graham McKay is visiting Sharren. She's battled disability and diabetes ever since a horrific car crash 28 years ago left her paralysed down one side. Now Sharren's left leg is not getting enough blood flow and must be amputated. Meantime, at Royal North Shore Hospital, Uniting Church Chaplain Julie Telfer meets Kerina who is being treated for an infected hand and has an interesting story to tell. And in ICU Chaplain Di Roche is preparing for the arrival of Annie and Ruby, therapy dogs who visit the unit once a week and help lift everyone's spirits.PRODUCTION DETAILS:Narrator: Geraldine Doogue, Series Producer & Writer: Paul Hawker, Editor: Lile Judickas, Location Producers: Richard Corfield / Kim Akhurst/Wendy Boynton, Executive Producer: Rose Hesp
