Hilltop Hospital is a pre-school medical soap-opera. It consists of 52 ten-minute shorts and is adapted from a series of books by Nicholas Allan of the same name. Hilltop is a hospital run for animals by animals. The dedicated staff ought to fight like cats and dogs but they pull together to cope with the heart-rending and the hilarious. It’s all in a day’s work at Hilltop!
The series was developed to help reassure children about hospitals, illnesses and accidents. Sometimes sad, sometimes happy, Hilltop is always hugely entertaining. More importantly it tells stories from a child’s perspective and aims to improve their understanding of situations which may concern them.
