Summary With a unique level of access, Great Ormond Street returns to the wards of London's foremost children's hospital. This revelatory series observes life and death decision-making by the various highly-skilled teams working on the wards, and the many challenges they face at the cutting edge of children's medicine.Episode four follows the intensive care and respiratory doctors at Great Ormond Street Hospital as they deal with difficult ethical decisions.
