A&E on the Road is a documentary series following the work of the West Midlands Ambulance Service's mobile teams.
In this episode, paramedic Ste Hill blue-lights it to the scene of a roadside accident where a motorcyclist has come off the road and collided with an electricity box on the side of the pavement. Ste does his best for Les the motorcyclist before he goes off to hospital - we then find out what Les remembers of the incident and what has happened to him since. Volunteer doctor Mike Greenway treats Hannah who has suffered an anxiety attack at work, paramedic Kathryn Davies looks after retired butcher Malcolm who's taken a tumble in the garden while watering his flowers, and ambulance crew Tracey and Dan rush a woman to hospital who's in excruciating pain from a kidney infection. Ste has another call-out to an OAP who has collapsed in a shopping centre - we follow Jean as her treatment for this condition reveals a more serious diagnosis - and how she deals with this with the help of her friend Joan.
In this episode, The BASICS team of Dr Ben Clark and student doctor Luke Hawkins go to treat two-year-old Ashanti who has suffered a fit.

Rapid response paramedic Simone Armfield blue-lights it to a country pub where a motorbike has been in a collision with a car - biker Simon suffered serious injuries in the crash, but we find out how they helped heal some far deeper wounds in his personal life. Paramedic Kathryn Davies attends to a 15-year-old with Crohn's disease, and her colleague Steve Hill pays a visit to Len, a war veteran who's fallen and can't get up.

The same patient is then attended to just eight days later by Mike's colleague Cameron McVittie.

The BASICs doctors deal with the aftermath of an epileptic fit, the MERIT mobile trauma unit travel to the scene of an accident where a young child has been clipped by a car, and rapid response paramedic Kathryn Davies deals with Melvin who has suffered from a seizure and cut his head.
