NDS Neurosurgeons to Feature in BBC Documentary Celebrating 70 Years of the NHS

The documentary will air this month on BBC One and BBC Two to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the founding of the NHS and will celebrate the life-changing work of our health service.

Looking at the impact the University of Oxford, the Radcliffe Infirmary and the John Radcliffe Hospital have had in the area of neuroscience, the programme focuses on the formation of Oxford Functional Neurosurgery at NDS, which Professor Tipu Aziz founded in 1993, and the work he has done with his team and continue to do with deep brain stimulation and electrical implants.

A film crew followed Professor Aziz and his team, including Mr James FitzGerald (pictured below) and Professor Alex Green, to show how their revolutionary surgery can offer hope to some patients battling the life-limiting tremors of Parkinson’s and help others walk again after years of constant pain.

Presented by Professor Aarti Jagannath from the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, the programme also explores the 300 year old ties between the University of Oxford and the John Radcliffe Hospital, and reveals how pioneering research is now making mind control a reality.

'How the NHS Changed our World: The John Radcliffe' airs on:

Wednesday 20 June 2018, 19:30, BBC One (only in the south)

Thursday 28 June 2018, 19:00, BBC Two
