Emergency | Series 2 Preview (Channel 4)
Stripped over four nights, this ground-breaking series tells the story of the London Major Trauma System.
Set up in the wake of the London bombings of 2005, it’s a unique interconnected network of hospitals, air ambulances and paramedics that provide a lifeline for 10 million people in London and the South-East. A system that has improved the chances of survival for major trauma patients by 50%.
With access right across this system, Emergency is a present-tense medical documentary box-set - four serial episodes over a single week - following the minute-by-minute decisions trauma teams make to treat the most serious cases: from life-saving interventions at the road-side to A&E critical care, from cutting-edge surgery to painstaking rehabilitation.
Channel 4's Rita Daniels said of the first series: “This is a hugely ambitious series, but with their track record I know The Garden will deliver a fantastic, intense and emotional series. I can’t wait to follow this incredible team of NHS emergency workers as they work tirelessly to keep the residents of London and the surrounding counties safe.”
Emergency begins Tuesday 15th August on Channel 4.
