''Getting On'' (2009-2012) is a [[BritCom British sitcom]] set in a hospital ward a million miles away from [[Series/{{House}} Princeton General]]. Situated right at the wrong end of the SlidingScaleOfShinyVersusGritty, the series is centered on a general ward and the unglamorous lives of its long-suffering staff. The series is written by its three female leads: Jo Brand as Nurse [[NamedAfterSomebodyFamous Kim Wilde]], Joanna Scanlan as Sister Den Flixter, and Vicki Pepperdine as Dr Pippa Moore. The show is intended to be a [[SlidingScaleOfRealisticVersusFantastic realistic]] portrayal of hospital life with naturalistic dialogue and [[{{Jittercam}} shaky camera movements]]. Its director Peter Capaldi may have learned a few tricks from his time working with Creator/ArmandoIannucci on ''Series/TheThickOfIt''.

Kim has returned to nursing after some time away, and is struggling to cope with the changes the UsefulNotes/NationalHealthService has been through in the meantime. New regulations stop her from providing good old-fashioned patient care and constantly throw up problems, not least of which is the oversensitive Matron Hilary Loftus.
