A hospital comedy set in male and female wards at a local hospital. Wally, in his seventies, an unwashed patient, creates havoc and resentment in the male ward. Ozzie, an orthopaedic patient who has problems with his genitals, having been bitten by a dog, begins his hospital experience in the female ward due to overcrowding. Later he shows some compassion for Wally. Was it Wally’s precious dog Sammy that bit him?
In the female ward we witness the jocular repartee between Sandy and Muriel who tease Liz, a hypochondriac. Liz’s husband Jim visits her regularly, but all is not what it seems especially when Dorothy arrives in the ward.
