Cameras film around the clock in some of Britain's busiest A&E departments, where stories of life, love and loss unfold every day
A rugby player is scanned for spinal damage following a collision during a match, and describes her struggles with mental health issues as she awaits the results. A teacher is knocked off his bicycle after receiving some bad news, while a man who broke two bones in his ankle after a fall is assisted by his dead wife's best friend.
Claire, 46, has been sent to A&E by her GP with chronic back pain, and doctors soon realise she may be suffering a serious underlying spinal injury. Anne Marie has been rushed to St George's following a suspected stroke, and staff have to act quickly to help prevent any long-lasting damage, while five-day-old Gracie is brought in by new parents Danny and Jordan, concerned she has an infected umbilical cord.
The staff at St George's Hospital in south-west London treat patients from three different generations. Leo is in A&E after crashing his car and flipping it on its roof. Leo's husband JR tells the story of how the two men met and how some members of their family struggled to accept their marriage. Meanwhile, young Kieran has hurt his wrist tumbling off his skateboard and 91-year-old Lillian has fallen over at home.
Seventy-year-old Jenny is brought in with a suspected stroke, and doctors must confirm the diagnosis and decide whether she is still in time to receive life-changing treatment. Her husband Roy shares the difficult experiences they've faced together and describes Jenny as the rock of the family. Ronnie has come into St George's with severe lower back pain. Doctors assess whether the 29-year-old's pain is due to his kidney stones or something more serious. Ronnie is accompanied by his girlfriend Anneline, who reflects on the similarities between Ronnie and her late father.
