Your Child In Their Hands: Kids' Hospital: last episode, 7pm tonight, Channel 5

kids hospitalFor all mums and dads seeing their child in hospital is one of the most frightening and challenging times of their lives.

In the final episode of the series, filmed at the Children's Hospital, Joanna and Gary have to make a hard decision:  their son needs an operation to repair his cleft lip and palate.  He was born prematurely and has a hole in the heart, so surgery is dangerous.

Jack and his mum Vicky are hospital regulars. A year ago, Jack had his knee and thigh amputated to remove a malignant tumour. After just a few months in remission, Jack's cancer is back.

After school is the busiest time in the hospital's A&E department, and an eleven year old girl is on her way.  She's fallen from a climbing frame and suffered a severe bang to her head.  The experience makes her mum re-evaluate her life.
