New episode of 24 Hours in A&E: Every cloud…
The RTS award-winning documentary series is back with its 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. It’s a place where stories of life, love and loss unfold every day.
This episode – Every Cloud – features three patients brought to St George’s for emergency treatment and looks at how families pull together and find strength in testing times.
52 year old Maria, who suffers from MS, has been brought to resus with suspected sepsis. As doctors work to regulate her temperature, her husband Duncan talks about their life together and how they supported each other through her diagnosis.
Eve, 83, is brought to the emergency department with her husband John after falling down the stairs into her basement. She has an open ankle fracture that needs urgent realignment to restore the blood flow to her leg and foot.
6 year old Grace has come to the paediatric emergency department with her dad Ben after getting a piece of tissue stuck in her ear.
