CHRONIC is a drama about a nurse who delivers home care for terminally ill patients.


There are scenes in which it is implied a stroke victim is watching pornography, with sexual sounds coming from his tablet device.

During one sequence a carer is washing a naked male patient, although sight of his penis is largely hidden. However, it is later claimed that the patient had an erection while being washed.


There is infrequent use of strong language ('f**k').

There are scenes of natural breast and buttock nudity as a carer washes his patients, including a sequence in which a woman has defecated in her clothes and must be cleaned.

Scenes of emotional distress in which characters struggle to cope with their illnesses, as well as a sequence of implied euthanasia.

In one scene, a man is hit by a car but while the initial impact is shown there is no subsequent sight of his body or of injury detail.
