24 Hours in A&E

Series 2 - Episode 1



“The human body is very fragile,” says Katalin, one of the registrars at King’s College Hospital whose job it is to save lives where she can. This is the second run of the award-winning series that’s more One Born Every Minute than Helicopter Heroes. As Katalin talks about what can be the final moments of a patient’s life, it becomes clear just how many people are involved during the crucial hours after injury – and how cycling to work can make for a risky commute.


The latest batch of patients to be treated in the A&E department of London's King's College Hospital includes two with serious head injuries, including a cyclist from Brighton who has been airlifted to the building. Also brought in by helicopter is a father-of-four who fell from scaffolding as he repaired a roof, while other cases include former docker Bill, who has hurt his knee while drinking at his local working men's club.
