The cast and production team of Twice Round the Daffodils create a noticeable similarity with the Carry On films, but the film is not an official member of the Carry On series.
A new group of patients arrives at a hospital to be treated for tuberculosis where they each take a fancy to one of the nurses.
The patients include John, a Welsh coal miner in a state of denial about his disease; Ian, a woman-chasing RAF officer; Bob, a man losing his girlfriend due to his internment; George, a West Countryman farmer; and the young Chris, a trainee chef bullied by John about his masculinity.
