Series Info

Set in a geriatric broadened mind wing of a down-at-the-heels hospital, Getting On takes after put-upon medical caretakers like nurses, anxious doctors, and administrators, on edge specialists and managers as they battle with the obscurely funny, ruthlessly genuine and discreetly merciful substances of administering to the elderly. It shows a dark comic reality.
