Watch Hospital S05E07 live on the web

The documentary looks at Alder Hey Children's Hospital's craniofacial department - one of only four in the UK that treats life-threatening congenital skull and facial abnormalities.

With a rise in referrals, the department is over-subscribed and neurosurgeon Chris Parks, who leads the craniofacial surgical team, faces a non-stop workload.

Chris always works hand in glove with Ben Robertson, one of three paediatric maxillofacial surgeons in the UK.

But this partnership is about to be broken up, as Ben is leaving to return to his native Australia. It takes 23 years' training to become a maxillofacial Consultant specialising in cranio-surgery, and there is currently nobody experienced enough to replace Ben, putting extra pressure on the waiting lists.
