    Presumably not.  TV productions tend to be big affairs, and even a relatively short scene can take a while to shoot.  So they usually don't shoot in currently operating businesses, especially ones like Hospitals which are open 24 hours and can't really shut down for the duration of the shoot.  Productions will usually shoot in shut down buildings or, more often, on sets.  For a relatively simple set like a hospital, which doesn't involve any bizarre architecture, it can be relatively easy for the crew to construct.  They can even replicate real world existing building interiors.  For example, the first season of the show American Horror Story is set in a haunted house which is based on a real house in Los Angeles, with distinctive architecture.  But the show actually filmed interiors on a set which they constructed to duplicate the interior of the house.  Studios, which the BBC effectively is, will also often have existing generic sets which they can use for common settings like a police station or a hospital.

    Probably not. It was probably filmed at a studio.
