News headlines constantly tell us our public health system and its workers are at breaking point. But what’s it really like to work on the hospital frontline?

In this ground-breaking series three Australian icons with a unique connection to the health system take a deep dive into a public hospital’s frontline to find out. Host of Gardening Australia Costa Georgiadis, food writer and TV host Melissa Leong, and actor Samuel Johnson are thrown out of their comfort zones and onto St Vincent Hospital’s frontline.

The Hospital: In the Deep End sees Costa, Melissa and Sam put to work for a week at one of the country’s busiest and most well-known hospitals. From drug and alcohol treatment, heart transplants, mental health wards and brain surgery, nothing is off limits. They will meet hospital staff at their most capable and patients at their most vulnerable. The pressures are intense, the outcomes at times uncertain, and the care factor is turned up high.

Melissa posted the SBS trailer on her Instagram yesterday.
