"As the series begins, the surgery is besieged by terrified parents clamouring for their children to be vaccinated after a meningitis outbreak claims the lives of two local youngsters. The normally bustling village of Cardale assumes an air of ghostly stillness as children are kept indoors, while the GPs face an uphill struggle persuading the local health authority chief to part with the funds needed for more vaccine. This popular series features a team of country doctors who work at The Beeches General Practice in the heart of the picturesque Peak District and focuses on the medical challenges and emergencies they and their patients have to face. It also follows the ups and downs in the personal lives of the doctors themselves and the local people living in the village of Cardale, blending strong medical stories, personal struggles, romance and humour"--Container.
