NHS specialists treat stroke patient on the front line

One hundred camera crews across the country have captured one day in the NHS at a critical time in the institution's history.

On an average day, 1,300 of us will die, 2,000 will be born and 1.5 million of us will be treated.

At Leeds General Infirmary, stroke doctors and nurses used a revolutionary treatment to save the speech and movement of 64-year-old Graham.

Graham is now making a good recovery and is walking and talking again and considering his return to work.

Keeping Britain Alive: The NHS in a Day starts on Tuesday 26 March at 21:00 GMT on BBC Two. Or catch up later on iPlayer.
