24 Hours In A&E | Series 30 Preview (Channel 4)
The award-winning documentary returns for its first ever series outside London - at Queen's Medical Centre, Nottingham, one of the busiest A&E departments in Europe.
This episode follows the stories of those whose lives have changed unexpectedly in an instant and how important it is for them to reflect on that and celebrate the challenges they've overcome.
Nottingham born and bred, Sister Lou tells her story of working at Queen's for over 30 years and how her life completely changed in her 50s. Forty-five-year-old Kirsty has been rushed into QMC after an accident at a fun run. Sister Lou and the emergency medical team face a challenge to ensure the injury is not life altering. John is suffering from shortness of breath.
His loving wife Florence is by the 93-year-old's side while doctors carry out extensive tests. Florence speaks about their life together, the setbacks they have faced and how lucky they are to have found each other.
In the Children's Emergency department, seven-year-old Hunter is with his mum Sarah, after he fell from a tree. As Hunter's injuries are assessed and X-rayed, Sarah talks of the initial struggles she faced as new mum, the love she has for Hunter, and the happy life she wants to give her son.
