24 Hours in A&E

Series 13 - Episode 6



As a Tooting resident, I know the south London neighbourhood that St George’s serves reflects the city’s diversity; when Pakistan won the Champions Trophy, celebrations halted traffic on the high street. Inevitably, the hospital’s patients are similarly cosmopolitan; here they include endearing Italian Mario, 85, and Pat, 65, who recalls his Irish father doffing his cap to English neighbours; Pat assumed they were gentry.

We also meet registrar Dimos, who says in his native Greece, “you learn about heroes, and how strong a dream can be”. That dream led him to London, as it does many others – and as this episode shows, the city is lucky to have them.


A 58-year-old woman is brought into the hospital after being run over by a lorry, suffering severe blood loss. Doctors are concerned that nerves and tissue in her leg may have suffered irreparable damage. Meanwhile, a 65-year-old man is treated after falling from a loft ladder, and a mischievous 85-year-old shows signs of severe dehydration.
