Recounting the humorous, sad and often bewildering interactions, the show follows Community Psychiatric Nurse Liz on her rounds as she visits the homes of her patients.

Speaking about the upcoming series, star and writer Paul Whitehouse said: “Nurse is a project close to my heart, it’s an opportunity to explore issues and characters at a deeper level, while trying to find humour and hope in difficult situations.’’
