Episode 4: 24 Hours in A&E

Summary

Liam, 31, is rushed to St George's after collapsing at home after his fourth epileptic seizure of the day, and he experiences another at the hospital, while 89-year-old Mair is brought to A&E with severe chest pain and difficulty breathing and doctors take blood samples to test whether her symptoms are due to pneumonia. Twelve-year-old Lauren arrives by ambulance after breaking her leg while scoring a try in a rugby match and she needs extensive surgery to give her the best chance of walking normally again.

Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

“Keep on Going” is the title of this episode, but “Love at First Sight” may be more apt. It features Liam, who’s 31 and has epilepsy. His wife Alice talks about their first meeting in an Ipswich nightclub: “He had a sheepskin coat on and some really not good shoes,” she says – but that didn’t stop them making an immediate connection.

Mair, 89, has come in with chest pains and breathing problems. Her daughter Janet says her dad fell in love with Mair the moment he set eyes on her; they married three months later.

And I, personally, fell in love immediately with nurse Sophie. She’s been working at St George’s for 15 years, but she quite likes the unorthodox hours. “How about your social life?” asks a voice from behind the camera. “I have no social life. I have no personality,” deadpans Sophie, “so that’s fine!”
