New episode of 24 Hours in A&E: A Stubborn Kind of Fellow…
The RTS award-winning documentary series returns for a fifteenth series following patients treated in the same 24 hour period at St George’s in south west London.
The hospital has one of the busiest A&E departments in Britain – under more pressure than ever. It’s a place where stories of life, love and loss unfold every day.
In this episode, 54 year old John comes into A&E after being involved in a cycling accident when he went over the handlebars of his bike causing him to lose consciousness for ten minutes. Dr Melissa needs to get him into the CT scanner to see if he has sustained any serious injuries to his head, neck or spine, whilst his wife Rachel is rushing to be at his side.
Eighty seven year old Sydney has been reluctantly sent to A&E directly from his GP’s surgery after experiencing severe chest pains, he is joined by his daughter, Marvin, and granddaughter Joanne.
Alan comes in after having a fall and badly fracturing his elbow, however he is rather annoyed to be missing the football but enlightens us on how his bachelor life changed when he went on a cruise and met a lovely lady called June.
Tune in tonight (Wednesday 25 July) at 9pm on Channel 4.
