24 Hours in A&E

A pedestrian seriously injured in a road traffic collision at St Mary Hoo is to be featured in award-winning Channel 4 documentary 24 Hours in A&E next week (Wednesday, November 13th).

Seventy-year-old Pauline suffered severe leg injuries after she was involved in a collision with a vehicle outside the Fenn Bell Inn pub in February.

Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance’s doctor and critical care paramedic were called and she was taken to King’s College Hospital in London.

Channel 4’s 24 Hours in A&E shows Pauline arriving in the resuscitation area of the major trauma centre where the helicopter’s doctor catalogues her injuries.

The first episode of the new series focuses on patients involved in serious road traffic collisions and shows that not all problems are immediately obvious.

As someone who has always put others first, Pauline reflects on the novelty of having to let others do things for her.

24 Hours in A&E  used more than 90 cameras to film around the clock at King’s, offering unprecedented access to one of Britain’s busiest accident and emergency departments. The BAFTA award-nominated programme is on every Wednesday at 9pm.

Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance is a life-saving charity helicopter which effectively takes A&E to the scene of accidents and emergencies. The care and treatment the medics provide is often crucial to the level of recovery a patient will make later on in hospital.

King’s College Hospital is recognised internationally for its work in liver disease and transplantation, neurosciences, cardiac, haemato-oncology, stroke and major trauma.
