Review

“They say being healthy is good for you, but I’ve never heard of anyone injuring themselves sitting in front of the telly with a cold beer,” jokes one of the radiologists at St George’s Hospital. And it’s true none of these patients ended up in A&E because they were watching TV.

Stephen, 48, has sustained a limb-threatening injury after riding his mountain bike through the woods; Bridget, 70, slipped while on a walking holiday in Greece and thinks she’s fractured her wrist; and 89-year-old Derek was pottering in the garden when he had “a wobbly moment” and collapsed. Their personal stories - which we gradually learn about – are as touching as always.

Summary

Cyclist Stephen, who's 48, has severely damaged his ankle after coming off his bike deep in woodland in Surrey, and doctors treat a man rushed in after collapsing with a suspected stroke in his garden. Meanwhile, Bridget, who's 70, broke her wrist when she slipped on a mountain path in Greece.
