The brand new 20th series of 24 Hours in A&E filmed in our emergency department will be broadcast at 9pm on Channel 4 tonight (Tuesday 14 January).

The show was first broadcast from King’s College Hospital in 2011 and relocated to St George’s after six series in 2014. Over the last six years we’ve recorded more than 200 episodes!

We’re also very excited to announce that in May we’ll be welcoming back The Garden – the production company behind 24 Hours in A&E – as they start filming for a seventh year at St George’s.

Tonight’s episode – Pressure Point – tells the story of a busy day in resus. Twelve-year-old George is airlifted to St George’s after being struck by a motorcycle on his way home from school.

Meanwhile, 26-year-old Tanveer is suffering from amnesia after crashing his moped to avoid a fox, and in paediatrics 9-year-old Amber has been brought in by mum Chanelle with suspected appendicitis.

As always, the series heavily features the hard work of our staff – not only those based in the emergency department but from other areas of the hospital who treat patients who come to St George’s via the emergency department.

With between 2 and 2.5 million viewers on average per episode, 24 Hours in A&E remains one of most popular TV shows in the UK – and the longest running documentary series.

Thank you to everyone who supports the series – and don’t forget to tune in tonight (14 January) at 9pm on Channel 4!
