New episode of 24 Hours in A&E: The Courage to Go On
The RTS award-winning documentary series is back with its fourteenth 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 – The Courage to Go On – features three patients brought to St George’s for emergency treatment.
Building site worker Zach, is rushed to A&E after severing four fingers in an accident at work. A&E staff and plastic surgeons work hard to assess the damage and stem the wound. Zach is joined by his girlfriend, Betsy, as they wait anxiously to find out if his fingers can be re-attached.
85-year-old Ricky is in A&E with her family after falling at home and hurting her back, while 10-year-old Daquon (pictured) has memory loss and a badly broken arm after he was hit by a motorbike on his way to school.
