75-year-old Bipin is in Resus suffering from a stroke. Meanwhile 80-year-old Myra is in A&E with a head injury after falling off her bicycle. Emergency Nurse Practitioner Louise has been nursing for almost 40 years and opens up about how personal challenges in her own life have taught her a greater sense of empathy for her patients.

Filmed in the autumn of 2020, the RTS award-winning documentary series returns for a twenty-sixth series following patients treated 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 the stories of people who, despite facing tragic circumstances, managed to pull through it with the love and devotion of the people by their sides.

75-year-old Bipin is urgently rushed to St George’s with a suspected stroke after his wife found him struggling to talk. As stroke doctors find a blood clot on his brain and urgently treat him with medication, his daughter Rina reflects on the unconventional beginnings of her father’s relationship with her mother – and how their deep love for each other has always enabled them to be there for each other.

Meanwhile in Majors, 80-year-old Myra visits the department after crashing her bike into a wall and damaging her head on her way home from playing tennis. Whilst doctors examine her for potential head-injuries, Myra shares her story of how her disabled mother opened her eyes up to life and how her mother’s stoic advice allowed her to recover after she lost her one true love.

Emergency Nurse Practitioner Louise has been nursing for nearly 40 years and shares how the tough times she’s suffered in her life enable her to have more empathy with her patients. She tells us about the tragic miscarriage she suffered in her youth and how the love and support of her husband helped her through this time.
