Only Yesterday Jan 1, 2015 The RTS award-winning documentary continues to follow patients treated in the same 24-hour period at St George's Hospital in south-west London, which has one of the most advanced and busiest A&E departments in the world; a place where stories of life, love and loss unfold every day. 44-year-old professional dog walker Janine is rushed to St George's after being kicked by a horse at her stables in Surrey. Janine was left unable to walk and had to crawl over two fields to call for help. A CT scan reveals a major fracture to Janine's pelvis and further tests are needed to determine whether her injuries could be life changing. Janine talks about her life-long affection for animals. "I have Asperger's. I find people, social situations very difficult. People are really complicated. Animals, they're so much easier," she says. "I've been called 'Little Miss Doolittle' because I do talk to the animals a lot. I just have an affinity with them. When I was a child I was always taking animals home. I took an elephant home once." Janine's mother suffered a major heart attack that left her with severe brain damage. "My mum's heart attack was a massive wake up call. I was like 'I've got to make some serious changes'," says Janine. "Everybody thought I was crazy when I said I wanted to start walking dogs, everybody. It was a crackpot idea, nobody took me seriously. So that was 13 years ago." 80-year-old retired dairy farmer Val is brought to Resus after suffering an uncontrollable nose bleed that has lasted three hours. His symptoms are complicated by anti-clotting medication he takes for his heart. Medics put special dressings up his nose to attempt to stem the bleeding; they are concerned that such heavy blood loss could be fatal for someone of Val's age. "Young adults will actually compensate having lost an awful lot of blood, whereas elderly patients will cope quite poorly losing what is a reasonably small amount of blood," says Dr Sophie. Val gave up his farm six years ago after a lifetime on the land. "People would think that I was mad getting up at five o'clock in the morning," he says. "On a nice spring morning you'd think 'Oh my, what a wonderful world!'. The real trauma was parting with the dairy herd. It was my reason for being." Meanwhile 18-year-old scaffolder George arrives in A&E after his motorbike collided with a car and he was catapulted into the windscreen. He has very obviously broken his leg, but doctors are concerned that George has a lack of movement in his foot which could indicate nerve damage. George is given Ketamine for the severe pain he's suffering and faces a six hour operation to fix his leg. "It does seem to be motorcyclists that come in with some of the worst injuries that you could get and some of the most devastating injuries as well," says Dr Sophie.

Keeo on Going Jan 1, 2015 The new series of the RTS award-winning documentary continues to follow patients treated in the same 24-hour period at St George's Hospital in south-west London, which has one of the most advanced and busiest A&E departments in the world; a place where stories of life, love and loss unfold every day. 31-year-old Liam is rushed to St George's after collapsing at home during an epileptic seizure. It was his fourth seizure of the day and he experiences another at the hospital. He's given an anti-seizure drug to stabilise his condition. Liam's wife Alice and mum Kimberley talk about the effect his seizures have on them all. "I dread that phone call one day from Alice," says Kimberley. "Maybe he's not gonna pull through. It's a worry every day." Kimberley was still at school and was starting to get into trouble when she became pregnant with Liam. "He was just like a God send," she says. "I had to grow up very quickly… you get this natural instinct of I've got to look after this. Your whole world is focused on this baby." 89-year-old Mair is brought to A&E suffering from severe chest pain and difficulty breathing. Doctors take blood samples to test whether her symptoms are due to pneumonia. While she's treated, Mair's daughter Janet talks about her mum, who ran a corner shop with her husband. "My mom and dad were very good providers, always had a lovely home," says Janet. "It was a nice childhood. First kids in the road to have a television. First kids in the road to have a car." Mair is keen to see her upcoming 90th birthday, but as she has existing heart problems, doctor Tom has to discuss whether she wants to be resuscitated if her heart stops. Meanwhile 12-year-old Lauren arrives by ambulance after breaking her leg while scoring a try in a rugby match. An x-ray shows the extent of her injury and Lauren will need extensive surgery to give her the best chance of walking normally again. "Lauren is a tom boy. She would always be the one up a tree…always kicking a ball around with the boys," says mum Rachel. "So at the moment I don't have that kind of relationship where we can go out doing the girlie things. She doesn't want her nails painted or for me to plait her hair."

Here We Go Again Jan 1, 2015 The brand new series of the RTS award-winning documentary continues to follow patients treated in the same 24-hour period at St George's Hospital in south-west London, which has one of the most advanced and busiest A&E departments in the world; it's a place where stories of life, love and loss unfold every day. 39-year-old Stephan is rushed to St George's with internal bleeding from his femoral artery. "When someone comes in and they're bleeding from their femoral artery, you need to act quickly," says registrar Sophie. "You need to stop that bleeding otherwise the consequences could be very serious." Stephan has a condition called Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome and the bleed was caused by complications following an angiogram he had the day before. Doctors are concerned that the drop in blood pressure and sudden blood loss could be putting Stephan's heart under potentially fatal strain. Stephan had to have a device fitted to restart his heart and his cardiologist encouraged him to 'live a little' – so he's in training for his first Iron Man event. Stephan's wife Fiona talks about how the couple met in their twenties, but things didn't work out and they cut all ties for three years before deciding to meet up to give it another try. "He pulled up the driveway, I took one look at him and I said 'I have to be with this guy!'," says Fiona. "There's not a day that goes by that he doesn't do something magical for me. He just treats me like a princess. I could not imagine my life without Stephan." 19-year-old Emmanuel Junior comes to A&E after suffering an acute attack of sickle cell disease. It's a chronic condition that causes infections, severe pain and can lead to early death. Emmanuel Junior's sister died from the condition. "Sickle cell, it's not anything that can be controlled," says Emmanuel Junior's mum, Elizabeth. "The blood cells sickle and then it starts a whole extreme painful episode. And you don't know when it's going to end." Meanwhile 40-year-old Fernanda has come into St George's with abdominal pain. The mum of five is with her 3-year-old twins and their dad Jorge. Doctors take blood and urine samples to find out what's causing Fernanda's pain. But the test results reveal a surprising reason for her discomfort.

Michelle was riding back from a rally on the Isle of Man with her husband Rik when the crash happened. She was taken to a local hospital, but her injuries were so severe that she's had to be transferred to St George's. Scans reveal that Michelle has broken bones in her neck, arm, ribs and shoulder. She'll need emergency surgery to fix her shoulder and the medical team won't know until afterwards if she will regain full use of her arm and hand. "I'm split between never wanting her to step on a motorbike again, to ever go near one," says Michelle's daughter Alex. "But then I think if it makes her happy, you just got to let her get on and do it." 69-year-old Timothy comes to St George's after riding his bicycle into the back of a parked ambulance. He has plenty of bruises and needs stitches for a cut finger, plus a flat tyre. Timothy was training for a 100-mile charity bike ride at the time of the accident. He cycled around Europe as a young man; that trip ended with him crashing into a kilometre stone near Venice. "I've been bicycling in London since I was ten. I used to bicycle up to Trafalgar Square and back, but there wasn't much traffic then," says Timothy. "As I got older, instead of being the quickest on the road I became the slowest… I always wanted to do a hundred miles when I was 70, and maybe once I'd done it I won't want to do it again." Meanwhile 33-year-old Eleanor is in A&E after cutting her thumb at home on a meat cleaver. She needs stitches. "It can't be worse than childbirth!" says Eleanor, who's heavily pregnant and the baby is due in a week.

Beth, who's originally from Canada, lives on her own after her husband died recently. "I remember losing my balance. I just remember going down, and when I landed thinking, 'Oh God! I've lost my foot'," says Beth. "I was scared, because I'm on my own. I'm not quite used to that yet." Dr Ashley is concerned that Beth may have sustained other internal injuries. Doctors manipulate her ankle back into place and she faces emergency surgery and intensive physiotherapy. But Beth is determined to walk again. "I've got things to do and places to go. I'm not ready to lay down and die yet!" she says. 67-year-old Leigh has head injuries after being knocked off his bicycle in a hit and run incident. He was travelling at speed and wasn't wearing a helmet. Medics are worried that he has suffered a severe trauma to his head and may have further injuries to his neck and spine. "A car came out of a side road, and he obviously didn't see me, because I hit him before I could even touch the brakes," says Leigh. "It was a horrible feeling. I just knew I was gonna crash." Leigh was born in Southern Rhodesia, which became Zimbabwe, and doesn't have any family in the UK. He talks about how life changed in the country as pressure for independence grew and why he had to leave at short notice after being threatened with arrest for treason. Meanwhile 26-year-old Luke comes to A&E after an accident at work involving an electric saw. He's accompanied by his twin brother, Dan. They were always close until Dan moved away and had a son with his girlfriend. Luke had a couple of run ins with the police, but now wants to find the right girl and settle down.

Athar wasn't wearing a helmet and 'bullseyed' the car's rear window; he can't remember anything about the crash. Doctors send him for a CT scan to assess whether he has sustained a serious head injury, as well as damage to his neck, spine or internal organs that could be life-changing. Athar faces major surgery and a period of recovery. His cousin Musawar talks about the close bond between the two young men and the challenges Athar faced when he moved to the UK from Germany with his family. 91-year-old Peter has come to A&E after suffering a fall three nights previously while at home with his wife. As well as carrying out x-rays, medical staff test for any underlying health problems that may have caused Peter's fall. Peter was born in India before being sent away to a boarding school in England at the age of seven. "I was extremely happy, in a lovely house in Lahore in the Punjab with a beautiful garden and two nice Scottie dogs," he says. "You couldn't have a more sort of luxurious, very comfortable life." Peter served as a dispatch rider for the Home Guard during the war before heading back to India to work as a shipping agent where he met his wife Marlene, who he now cares for. "She can't do very much at all, because her balance is so bad. So I'm the one that needs two feet because I have to do everything," he says. Meanwhile 26-year-old Emma is in hospital with mum Tracey and dad Stuart. She cut her head open after suffering an epileptic seizure. Emma also has a form of cerebral palsy called hemiplegia that leads to stroke-like symptoms. It's the ninth time this year she's needed treatment. Tracey talks about how Emma's conditions affect her and the family. "You do try and have as normal a life as possible," she says. "It is hard, sometimes it is hard. In day-to-day life you get a protective shell…because that's how you survive. You don't know what's in the future, so you try and cram as much in as you can."

Jack managed to push his friend out of the way, but he was thrown up in the air and banged his head, fracturing his skull. He was taken to a local hospital, but his injuries are so severe that he's been transferred to St George's. A CT scan reveals that Jack has a bleed on his brain caused by the fracture and doctors are also worried that he may have internal bleeding. He's taken to intensive care. "I think when it's a head injury. Cause you can't see it you don't know what's happening," says Jack's mum Lynda. "I just felt so helpless because I just couldn't do anything for him." Consultant Will feels huge empathy for Jack's parents. "When it's your child lying on a trolley I think parents are completely overwhelmed. It's completely alien to anything else they've ever been involved in before," he says. "All they can see is their son there and worrying about exactly what is happening." 24-year-old Jake arrives in A&E after being involved in a head-on collision with another car and he 'bullseyed' the windscreen. He was driving past his ex-girlfriend at the time. Jake has a seven inch injury on his head, but fortunately no sign of brain injury. He admits he's accident prone. "I've had broken hands and fingers, big slashes on my legs," says Jake. "I've got 'You Only Live Once' tattooed on my arm. If you have something tattooed on you and then you don't live by it you're an idiot if you ask me." Meanwhile 32-year-old Saumeel has come to hospital with his brother Rishin after cutting his hand badly on a washing machine. Student doctor Uzair, who's just started at St George's, is looking after Saumeel, but he needs some specialist help to stitch the wound.

She has a head injury and is designated as a 'Code Red', meaning she's bleeding badly. Emergency doctors have put her into an induced coma. Clinical director Phil orders urgent CT scans as soon as Tulsi arrives so he can assess the extent of her injuries. They reveal that she has a subdural haematoma – a clot of blood within the head which is expanding, putting pressure on her brain. Tulsi needs emergency brain surgery. "If that pressure builds up and the brain is squashed, it can stop the patient breathing," says Dr Phil. "Your worry is that, even if you do get the clot out and the child survives, that she may have residual brain dysfunction or injury." 39-year-old bus driver Adam is rushed to A&E after his motorbike collided with a car in south west London on his way home from work. Adam has a very obvious and painful leg injury, but consultant Rhys is concerned that there might be something less visible, but more life-threatening. "Coming off a motorbike at high speed, they could be injured anywhere," says Dr Rhys. "Sometimes it's not the leg that I'm most worried about, it's the things like, inside his chest or is there anything going on in his abdomen or his pelvis or his head?" CT scans reveal that Adam has fractured his wrist and some of the bones in his spine. He also has bruised lungs and an injury to his kidney. And he faces lengthy emergency surgery to fix his badly broken leg and a long period of rehabilitation. Meanwhile 70-year-old retired mechanic Ron has come to St George's after getting his hand caught between two vehicles while helping a friends fix their car. He's been brought in by his girlfriend, bus driver Jackie. Doctors suspect he may have broken some bones. "We went to bed that night and didn't think much of it," says Jackie. "When we got up in the morning, looked like someone had got hold of a rubber glove and blown it up!"

He was talking when the ambulance crew arrived, but soon became unresponsive. Scans reveal that Tony has a severe bleed on his brain and requires immediate life-saving surgery. While his family wait on tenterhooks for news, Tony's wife Sue talks about the challenges life with her husband, who worked on helicopters for the RAF. "When I married Tony I knew what the military life was, I didn't enter it blind," says Sue. "We moved around, we've had to mould together as a family, you have to rely on each other. He missed the family dreadfully when he was away." 23-year-old Charlie has come to A&E with facial injuries after being assaulted on his way home from a night out. Doctors suspect he may have a broken jaw and send him for x rays. "Charlie as a little boy, he was very adventurous and fearless I'd say," says dad Mark. "From the time he was probably five or six, Charlie would generally be in the wrong place at the wrong time. He was just really inquisitive." "We've had a really up and down journey. Lots of times when I wondered if he would come out the other side and just not be there one day," says Mark. "That didn't really change until he met his partner. And then having a child made him realise that he needed to grow up." Meanwhile 10-year-old Lucy is in A&E after having seizures for the past 48 hours. Her parents first realised something wasn't quite right when she was four or five and they haven't been able to find out what is wrong with her. "There has never been a week where she's been completely seizure free," says Lucy's mum Zoe. "It's just devastating, because I just want to be able to take it away and everything be all right, but we still don't know what's wrong."
