About this work


'In Good Hands' complements two earlier films 'People Like Us', about the work of psychiatric nurses, and 'No Good Just Feeling Sorry', about nursing people with mental disabilities. The film was shot at two hospitals and a school of nursing in Sussex and shows how registered general nurses (RGNs) are trained both in the lecture room and in the hospital.
