AIDS: DOCTORS AND NURSES TELL THEIR STORIES

August 16, 2018

ADANTTSFor the first time, doctors and nurses who cared for Britain’s first AIDS patients in the 1980s tell of the extraordinary situation they found themselves in and the rules they had to break to help patients forgotten by the state.

With little treatment on offer, their role was to help these young men deal with early, painful and often undignified deaths.

Black and white photographs of young gay men ill and dying on hospital wards are intercut with the honest testimony from the nurses and doctors who fought to give their patients the best death they could in the worst circumstances.
