Burly builder Jim is howling as he’s brought into the King’s College Hospital A&E: “Wait! Hold it, hold it!” He’s fallen backwards into a hole and has dislocated his shoulder in the most painful way possible.

You will warm to Jim in yet another often funny, frequently moving episode as, fully recovered, he becomes his old self again. “You people are just sensational, thank you very, very much,” he tells the medical team. You will love Alan, who hides fears for the health of his one remaining leg behind his bluff humour, and birdlike, 91-year-old Rose, who’s had a stroke. She insists to the lovely staff that her top priority is to see her 92nd birthday.

About this programme

4/14. A builder falls at work and dislocates his shoulder in such an unusual way it takes a five-strong team to pull it into place. A man in his sixties who had one leg amputated in 2009 comes in with the other dangerously swollen following a holiday in Goa, and an 83-year-old has to be persuaded by senior sister AnnMarie to accept treatment for a cyst on his knee.
