Aaron, who's 31, is rushed to St George's after overturning his car onto metal railings during a high-speed collision. He has a serious laceration to his face where a spiked railing narrowly missed his eye socket. It becomes apparent that Aaron's memory has been affected; doctors suspect a brain injury and take him to CT. As Aaron undergoes tests, his twin brother Alvin talks about his hopes for Aaron's future. Fiona, who's 65, is rushed to St George's after falling over in a restaurant and cutting her knee during her friend Evelyn's 70th birthday party. Doctors are concerned that Fiona may have damaged a major artery.
Niki is airlifted to St George's after crashing in a charity bike ride. His wife is almost 300 miles away. Peter, who's 90 and served in the RAF during WWII, has blood poisoning.
This episode focuses on the ups and downs of family life and how people pull together to get through them. Pam, who's 53, is rushed to A&E after suffering a suspected heart attack. As doctors try to establish whether it definitely was a heart attack or another underlying condition, Pam's daughter Meg talks about how her bond with her mum has strengthened over the years and how she helped her mum when she and Meg's dad decided to get divorced. Ten-year-old Cora is rushed to St George's after being thrown from a horse into the low hanging branches of a tree. Her mother Sharon rushed to the scene and says 'she had blood all over her face... and... this piece of wood sticking out just under her eye.' Doctors work quickly to assess whether or not she has also injured her neck, spine or brain.
Fifty-one-year-old painter and decorator Gary is rushed to St George's after falling ten feet from a ladder. As Dr Rob sends Gary for urgent CT scans, Gary's dad Don talks about Gary's bad luck in love after two engagements were broken off: 'it broke his heart and he's never been with anyone since'. Gary's best friend and colleague John reflects on the importance of their friendship: 'he's a member of the family, he's seen my daughter born... never misses out on anybody's birthday.' But when Gary's scans arrive, Dr Rob becomes increasingly concerned about fractures in his back, pelvis and coccyx.
