1. Nurse Jackie

Why should the doctors get all the glory when there’s a carer like Jackie Peyton on the job? ER nurse Jackie is possibly the best in the business. The only problem is she believes in the healing power of medicine a little too much ... While Jackie’s drug addiction gets her into frequent trouble, both personal and professional, there’s no denying her skills in the ward and her charming bedside manner. This medical comedy-drama garnered many award nominations and one Emmy® win for Edie Falco (who plays the lead).

2. Grey’s Anatomy

This medical drama has become a cultural phenomenon. It portrays the blood, sweat and tears of five surgical interns as they turn into competent doctors with the help of their mentors.

3. Pure Genius

One of the fanciest medical dramas out there, Pure Genius (2016) follows a bunch of industry-changing doctors at the Bunker Hill medical facility. Heading up the medical miracle workers is James Bell (Augustus Prew), a billionaire tech genius who has given his staff the latest and greatest machines and technology to save lives. What James isn’t telling his team, though, is that he’s suffering from what, right now, is an incurable condition. And that’s part of his motivation for starting Bunker Hill and using all the technology available to him. He wants his doctors to help other patients while at the same time looking for a cure for his own disease.

4. Code Black

At LA County Hospital you either pray for a miracle or you perform one in this heart-stopping and gripping medical drama. When it’s Code Black, all bets are off.

5. House

Get your House fix with all eight seasons of this smash-hit show starring Hugh Laurie as the Dr Gregory House. House may be rude, cranky, insulting, and a bully, but he’s also a medical genius. The only reason he keeps his job, despite his arrogance and constant flouting of hospital rules and procedures, is that he’s almost clairvoyant at diagnosis, picking up on subtle clues that others miss. With every season now available, all his witty wisecracks and baffling cases can be enjoyed from the very beginning.
