Take Care Jan 1, 2013 The RTS award-winning documentary series continues from St George's hospital in south west London, which has one of the world's most advanced and busiest A&E departments. This programme focuses on caring and kindness, whether from staff, family or friends. 13-year-old cyclist Sam is rushed to A&E after coming off her bike at high speed during a race, landing on her head. She's complaining of pain down her spine and has been vomiting and in and out of consciousness since the accident. Mum Nancy was called by the race organisers. "I didn't take it too seriously to begin with, she falls off her bike regularly," says Nancy. "When I got to the site I saw how bad she was…when she looked at you there was no-one there." Doctors are concerned that Sam's symptoms could be the result of a significant brain injury and she's sent for a CT scan. While she waits for the results, Nancy talks about how Sam has become her carer since she suddenly became partially-sighted. 84-year-old Ursula arrives in resus. She's had a series of severe nose bleeds and paramedics are worried she's losing a large amount of blood. Ursula has been suffering prolonged episodes of bleeding for over a year. Ursula was born in Germany and lived through allied bombing of Hamburg during the war. She met her husband, a British soldier, on a fairground when he was stationed in Germany after the war. "I couldn't speak English. I told him to come up and meet my parents," says Ursula. "He said to my mum and dad he would like to marry me. They weren't very pleased with it. My grandfather went mad. He said 'You can't marry one of them!'." And Ursula talks about caring for her husband after he was diagnosed with lung cancer. Meanwhile 76-year-old Margaret is brought to St George's after suffering what is suspected to have been a stroke during a routine hospital appointment at another hospital. She has lost sensation down one side of her body and also involuntary movement of her legs, which could be the result of damage to her brain. St George's is a specialist stroke centre and the doctors may be able to administer a clot-busting drug if they can act quickly enough. Margaret is kept company by best friend Barbara and they talk about their five decade friendship.

Some Like It Hot Jan 1, 2013 The RTS award-winning documentary series continues from St George's hospital in south west London, which has one of the world's most advanced and busiest A&E departments. This programme focuses on patients treated on a busy evening at the height of summer. "Some people, they go out and have far too much to drink… get into fights…and do somebody some pretty significant damage. It's very difficult to understand how there are people in society like that," says St George's A&E clinical director Phil. "But that's why we're always here. We're open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. We're not going anywhere." 18-year-old student George is brought to resus following a fight at a party. He has blood coming from his ears, is disorientated and is behaving erratically, swearing at staff and his family. "He's never called me names, he's never sworn. He's normally really polite," says George's worried mum Maxine. "He just didn't look right, he just didn't look himself. He looked really, really drunk like he'd taken something." But blood tests show no evidence of drugs and only a small trace of alcohol in his system. Consultant Phil is concerned that George may have suffered a life-threatening bleed on his brain and sends him for an urgent scan. George may need emergency brain surgery. 40-year-old doorman Alfred is rushed to A&E after being stabbed three times outside the social club where he works. With wounds to the chest, abdomen and eye, junior doctor Simon is concerned that Alfred could have suffered serious internal injuries. "I've seen people with a tiny little entry wound on their abdomen with a nasty liver injuries," says Simon. "If they hit any sort of big blood vessel, they can lose a lot of blood very quickly." Meanwhile 28-year-old schoolteacher Niall is brought into St George's by his boyfriend John with a suspected ulcer on his eye after falling asleep with his contact lenses in. Light is so painful for Niall that John had to tape some tin foil over a pair of swimming goggles for him. Emergency nurse practitioner Becky attempts to ease Niall's pain and examines his eyes to look for signs of the ulcer. Niall and John met at a party. "He cooked me beef wellington from scratch on our fourth date and he plays the piano. He can play any tune you want him to play," says John. "I decided that he was a keeper after a couple of weeks."

Keep on Moving Jan 1, 2013 The RTS award-winning documentary series continues from St George's hospital in south west London, which has one of the world's most advanced and busiest A&E departments. This programme focuses on people facing adversity head on. 61-year-old Erin is rushed to St George's after she collapsed at home and suffering with a severe ear infection. The condition can spread to the brain and, in the most severe cases, can even kill people. Erin has been battling the infection for several weeks, but the pain is now so severe that medics have to give her intravenous morphine. She's sent for a scan to see what caused the collapse and whether she suffered any damage to her head in the fall. Erin previously survived breast cancer and has suffered numerous complications, including heart failure, as a result of the treatment. "Mum was so optimistic," says daughter Mason. "It's heart-breaking watching someone you love suffer. I don't know anyone as strong as my mum that could go through all of those illnesses one after the other and still be here and she's still smiling." 70-year-old part-time DJ Tony arrives in A&E after a high-speed bicycle accident. Tony is having difficulty breathing, so he's sent for an urgent CT scan to discover any serious internal injuries. Doctors discover he has fractured ribs and a collapsed lung, which will need to be re-inflated. Tony was training for a 100-mile charity bike ride when he had his crash. "Mum does say to him, 'You're 70 now, you haven't got the body of a 40-year-old'," says daughter Jo. "She just thinks he should slow down. He just wants to live life to the full." Meanwhile 39-year-old cabin crew worker Charlie has come to St George's with his partner, Danny. He's been off work for a week after breaking his arm falling off his scooter. Charlie was treated in hospital at the time and had surgery to fix his arm and a cast put on. But he discharged himself and removed the cast. Now he can't bear the pain and needs more treatment.

Lean on Me Jan 1, 2013 The RTS award-winning documentary series continues from St George's hospital in south west London, which has one of the world's most advanced and busiest A&E departments. This programme focuses on the importance of having someone to love and support us when life gets tough. 66-year-old Gerald is rushed to St George's by air ambulance after falling ten feet from his loft, through his bannisters and then down two flights of stairs. He has a serious head wound and medics are concerned he could have suffered neck and spinal injuries. Gerald is a trained lifeguard and has worked as a polo club official in Windsor for thirty years, where he's met many of the Royal family over the years. But he's never married. "Just never went that way. Came close once or twice," says Gerald. "I sometimes think I'm probably better off without." 50-year-old Beverley arrives in A&E with an open fracture of her right leg after being hit by a car near her home. An x-ray reveals that she will need both her lower leg bones re-aligning before having surgery to repair them. And it means she'll miss a weekend of dancing too. Several members of Beverley's close family are there by her side. "I find it very strange when some of my girlfriends tell me that 'I hate my sister' or "We haven't spoken in years'," says Beverley. "Why? They're the closest people to you. Life is far too short to not talk to someone." Meanwhile 39-year-old father-of-six Paul is brought to resus with a nasty cut to his right arm from some building rubble he was removing. He can't move his fingers, meaning that he could have significant tendon and nerve damage requiring surgery. As the doctors battle to save the use of his hand, Paul worries that if the injury is permanent he won't be able to work. "He's a grafter," says Paul's sister Debbie. "As long as he's working and he can earn the money for his family, then he'll be happy."

Father's Day Jan 1, 2013 The RTS award-winning documentary series continues from St George's hospital in south west London, which has one of the world's most advanced and busiest A&E departments. This last programme of the current series, filmed on father's day, focuses on the challenges of parenting. 3-year-old Billy is brought to A&E by his parents with swollen eyes after accidentally squirting washing detergent in them. Billy also has a life-threatening kidney disorder, nephrotic syndrome, which lowers his immune system and makes him more prone to infections – he's been hospitalised five times in the last year alone. Billy need his eyes washing out, while doctors run tests to discover if the swelling is a symptom of his kidney disorder. "You sit there and think, why Billy? Why does he have to have it? It's just not fair," says Billy's mum Lauren. "But, it's the card you're drawn, I suppose, and we have to deal with it." The pressure of Billy's illness and losing another baby during pregnancy led his parents, Lauren and Billy, to separate. But they are still close as a family and Lauren doesn't rule out a reconciliation. "At the moment it's working for us," she says. "He's an amazing dad. In a year's time we could've grown closer." 60-year-old retired lorry driver Tony, who's type two diabetic, has come to St George's because of an infected leg wound. He needs intravenous antibiotics and to be assessed to ensure it doesn't spread. Tony has three daughters, eight grandchildren and a great granddaughter. He talks about his own parents. "I had many runs in with my father, but my mum, she just stood up for us all the time. Although we might have been wrong," says Tony. "I was a very, very naughty boy. Used to get the cane and all sorts. I got expelled in the end. "I was a bit of a tea leaf. It started with pushbikes…my dad taught me to drive, so I got the experience of driving and I was 14, 15…I'd go out an nick a car. I got my collar felt three or four times. Being under lock and key…I didn't like it at all. Once I got married that all stopped. Because I had responsibilities, you gotta grow up." Accompanying Tony is wife Kay. She was diagnosed with agoraphobia eight years ago. "She stayed in the top back bedroom for two years. Didn't come out at all," says Tony. "But I love her and I want to be with her, so that's all there is to it." Meanwhile 80-year-old Ida, a retired PA, is brought into St George's with knee pain by her husband Ron. X-rays reveal a mysterious shadow on her knee bone, which needs further investigation to rule out cancer. Ron and Ida recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. They were married, appropriately, on St George's Day in 1955 and are inseparable. "We're like two peas in a pod," says Ida. "If I take a breath, he takes the next one."

The One Jan 1, 2013 The RTS award-winning documentary series continues from St George's hospital in south west London, which has one of the world's most advanced and busiest A&E departments. This programme features patients who fell in love with their partners at first sight. Pub landlord Tony badly burnt his legs when his barbecue gas cylinder exploded. He was only wearing his boxer shorts at the time and is in a lot of pain - he needs morphine as nurse practitioner Shabana cleans his wounds. Emma, Tony's partner of five years, is with him and tries to cheer him up. "That's gonna be your new name now: 'BBQ Legs!'," she teases. The couple met in a supermarket. "I chose to ignore him," says Emma. "Every time I went to Asda he was there peering round the corner and sometimes when I was driving home I could see a Range Rover in my rear view mirror and it was Tony. That went on for about two years. I did like the fact that he kept chasing and didn't give up." 93-year-old war veteran Henry is rushed to St. George's with severe breathing difficulties. Doctors test his blood for signs of damage to his heart. Henry and his wife Audrey have been married for nearly seventy years. "We never went to bed without a kiss. That was one of his rules," says Audrey. "He was always a gentleman." The couple met in Northumberland in the 1930s and married without her parents' permission. Henry flew in the Fleet Air Arm and fought in the Second World War. The couple went on to travel the world and have two children. But as it becomes clear that Henry has had a heart attack, Audrey has to accept that her husband won't be around forever. Meanwhile 61-year-old builder Bill fell from his shed while cutting back trees in his garden. He was knocked unconscious and has pain in his right shoulder and lack of feeling in his hands. Examining his CT scan, consultant Sunil discovers that Bill has broken his neck in three places and refers him for assessment by neurosurgeons on whether he'll require surgery to avoid damage to his spinal cord. Bill's wife Alison and mother in law Barbara are on hand to lift his spirits. Bill was the ex-husband of Alison's neighbor. "Bill was gonna lay a footpath down my garden," says Alison. "And I used to say to her 'Cor, he's a bit of alright'." Alison was getting over a difficult relationship when she met Bill and he's helped her turn things round. "I had real low self-esteem. I used to have panic attacks," says Alison. "Bill brought me out of that. He changed my life for the better really. I think I've met the right person now."
