The BBC have announced that they are scrapping Holby City after 23 years. They have said that 'This tough decision reflects the BBC’s commitment to make more programmes across the UK and to better reflect, represent and serve all parts of the country.'

Holby City has millions of weekly viewers, and has won hundreds of awards. It is also one of the most diverse dramas on the BBC - bringing stories of real people across society, from all backgrounds and experiences. The combination of permanent characters and single episode characters offers a huge range of storylines, highlighting important issues and experiences in medicine and society. The show has raised awareness about so many issues of value to the public - whether that's mental health, bereavement, exploring faith or sexuality.

If like me and my family, you care so much about this program please share and sign this petition.

The pandemic has shown how highly the public value the NHS, and Holby City is an important representation of the work that the NHS does, and the issues the NHS and its staff and patients face.

Sign this petition to urge the BBC not to scrap Holby City.
