Episode 2: 24 Hours in A&E

Summary

The stories of children and teenagers brought into A&E. Sixteen-year-old Ellie has suspected spinal injuries after being thrown from her horse and crushed against a fence, while consultant Jacqui Butler treats four-year-old Destiny, who has a fishbone stuck in his tonsils from his lunchtime curry. Plus, a pregnant woman experiences intense pain following a sudden haemorrhage

Review

The mixture of sadness and uplift is as strong as ever in this bulletin from King’s College Hospital. The star is Dr Matt, who at a boyish 27 complains that patients sometimes want to know how long he has been a doctor before they let him take their blood.

This particular 24 hours will prove tough for Matt, though not for the reasons we expect. That’s the beauty of a drama that unfolds with the full unpredictability of real life. Sixteen-year-old Ellie is brought in by air ambulance from Kent after being thrown from her horse and crushed against a fence. She can’t feel her left arm and leg – and that is a worry.
