Filmed in the autumn of 2020, the RTS award-winning documentary series returns for a twenty ninth 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 – a place where stories of life, love and loss unfold every day.

This episode follows patients and staff at St. George’s who find comfort in difficult times amongst colleagues and friends.

64-year-old Lynn is rushed to A&E after suffering from a brain aneurysm. Her friend Mick tells the story of his lifelong friendship with Lynn and reveals how she overcame serious health problems with the support of him and his wife.

Meanwhile, 59-year-old James has severely dislocated his shoulder after falling over. He’s joined in resus by his closest friend Karen, who helped James recover after he suffered from a serious assault several years ago.

30-year-old Lucas has come to St. Georges after developing a suspected urinary tract infection. Lucas tells us how he was born with major issues with his kidneys and bladder, and how a lifetime of treatment has changed his perspective on hospitals.
