Episode 2: 24 Hours in A&E

Summary

This episode follows the stories of people who have lived through tragic, life-changing events, and explores how these individuals endure with the strength and support of their loved ones. An 86-year-old man is rushed to St Georges by paramedics after a suspected stroke, while an 80-year-old woman is seen by doctors after falling and sustaining an open fracture to her leg. On the paediatric ward, a mother has brought her 14-year-old daughter to see a doctor after she hurt her ankle during gymnastics

Review

Over the past nine years we’ve seen some incredible stories about the A&E departments at King’s College and St George’s hospitals. But the underlying theme, whether the staff were treating a youngster who’s been run over or a pensioner who’s had a stroke, is the importance of family and love.

This episode filmed at King’s reminds us about delivery driver Tony, seriously injured after a car crash, whose wife hates going to hospital ever since their son died there suddenly. We also see Jim, 79, who is having breathing difficulties. Chatting to the nurses he says the biggest lesson that life has taught him is “family first and last”.
