Review

The scariest cases that the staff at St George’s have to deal with — and the most frightening for us to watch unfold, too — are those when the most serious problems aren’t immediately obvious.

Adam, a 39-year-old bus driver, has a visible injury to his leg after he collided with a car while riding his motorbike — but consultant Rhys is more worried about potentially life-threatening internal injuries. And 12-year-old Tulsi — who hit her head when she fell from a cliff — needs an urgent CT to decipher what’s going on inside her skull.

Fortunately for retired mechanic Ron, his problem is obvious: his hand has ballooned after being crushed between two cars.

Summary

Twelve-year-old Tulsi is airlifted to St George's after falling from a cliff near her home in Hastings, and CT scans reveal she requires emergency brain surgery. Meanwhile, 39-year-old Adam is rushed to A&E after his motorbike collided with a car, leaving him with an obvious and painful leg injury, and 70-year-old retired mechanic Ron is treated after trapping his hand between two vehicles while helping his friend fix their car.
