Who cares for the carers? is the question posed by this film. Hospital workers are prone to suffer all kinds of occupational health hazards and for those at the bottom of this complex social hierarchy, stress is often one of the biggest problems. Whilst being specifically about ill-health in hospitals, this environment can be seen as a microcosm of all workplaces.
Part of a series of films A Picture of Health which challenge the notion that ill-health is a matter of only individual concern and cure. It argues that it concerns not only the medical expert but also society and change must come through political action.
