The RTS award-winning documentary series returns for a sixteenth 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.

This episode – To have and to hold – focuses on stories of triumph in the face of adversity.

Nikkita, 27, is brought to A&E by ambulance after having a severe epileptic fit. Her dad, Derry, is by her side as doctors try to get to the root cause of her seizure.

89 year old Phillip has collapsed at home experiencing chest pain, doctors are concerned he is having a heart attack, whilst plumber Sebastian is taking a trip to A&E after slicing the tops of his fingers off whilst at work.

Tune in tonight (Monday 3 December) at 9pm on Channel 4.
