Caroline Clarke, Royal Free London chief executive, added: “We are delighted to be able to continue working with Label1 and the BBC following the overwhelmingly positive response from viewers, and our staff, to Hospital Special: Fighting Covid-19. Our staff did an incredible job of showcasing the efforts taking place across the NHS in response to this devastating pandemic.”
