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.
