Weight Loss Ward


One of the UK’s biggest and busiest obesity units opened its doors to allow Shiver and ITV viewers an exclusive insight into their battle with the bulge.

Sunderland Royal Hospital is at the heart of a part of the country with one of biggest obesity problems in the country – the Weight Loss Ward is like a conveyor belt with thousands of patients turning to the knife to beat their obesity.

Over 12 months Shiver had access to film with the staff and the patients including 47 stone Terry who, aged just 29, is one of the biggest patients the unit has ever treated.

The two documentaries were series produced and directed by Anna Hall with Sally Evans executive producing for Shiver.
