New episode of 24 Hours in A&E: Value of Life…
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 – Value of Life – features two patients filmed over 24 hours at St George’s.
In this life-changing episode, 35-year-old Rich is airlifted to St George’s after being involved in a high-speed collision with another vehicle on the M25. Doctors are concerned that he has lost feeling below his chest and cannot move his legs, he tells staff that he is expecting a baby with his girlfriend, Hannah, who is rushing to be by his side.
Meanwhile, 36-year-old Justin has had a life threatening accident whilst playing football. Doctors put him into an induced coma whilst they carry out a CT scan, where they discover a potentially life threatening bleed on his brain. We witness his Mum and wife as they say their goodbyes before he’s rushed for emergency surgery where doctors will attempt to stem the bleeding on his brain.
Tune in tonight (Monday 12 November) at 9pm on Channel 4.
