RMCH features in Channel 4 documentary

Born to be DifferentRoyal Manchester Children's Hospital features in the tenth anniversary series of Channel 4's award-winning documentary Born to be Different. The first series introduced us to six three-year-old children, each born with a different disability. 'Born to be Different' offers intimate insights into what it's like to grow up with a disability, as we watch as the children face the tricky transition from primary to secondary school, from childhood to teenage years. For some families there are heart-rending decisions to be made, and all parents are forced to make psychological adjustments most families never have to contemplate.

RMCH patient Emily Speirs along with clinicians Alan Dickson and Malcolm Lewis will appear in Episode 2 which is broadcast on Thursday 21st March at 9.00 pm on Channel 4. Don't miss it!
