JWs Featured in Holby City Storyline
Stoffer posted a topic in TV, Movies, Sports, Video & TheatreIn the BBC medical drama series "Holby City" this week (series 19, episode 39) entitled "Keeping The Faith", the storyline mentions a widower and his daughter who are both JWs. The daughter needs an operation that the grandfather (who is a consultant surgeon in the same hospital) insists needs a blood transfusion, whilst the father and his daughter obviously require the operation without blood. On the whole I feel it portrayed us in a positive light and was quite realistic. I liked how the surgeon consulted not only with the father but with the daughter (by herself) to ask what she really believed and wanted. The surgeon mentioned something called HAS (Human Albumin Solution). I had never heard of it before so I checked online and as far as I can see, it's a component that comes from the plasma. Here's the official guide that comes with one of these HAS medicines: http://www.medicines.org.uk/emc/PIL.22494.latest.pdf Attached is the GIF I made of the parts relating to JWs from this episode:
