24 Hours in A&E

17 August 2012 - The second series of 24 Hours in A&E, the Channel 4 documentary about the work of staff in our Emergency Department, has now finished.

24 hours in A and E

You can still watch programmes from series 2 by logging onto the Channel 4 website
The website also provides additional information about the series, including exclusive interviews with King’s patients and staff, as well as a virtual tour of our Emergency Department, which treats over 400 patients every day.

The second series of 24 Hours in A&E peaked at 3.7 million viewers, and during broadcast was Channel 4’s most watched programme. Series 3 of 24 Hours in A&E – also filmed at King’s - will be broadcast next year.

Dr Malcolm Tunnicliff, Consultant and Clinical Lead for our Emergency Department, said the series helped educate and inform viewers:

"The series shows that working in an Accident and Emergency Department is incredibly challenging, but also very rewarding. Capturing on film the real mix of cases seen every day - and the efforts our staff make to try and put people back on their feet - helps educate the public about what we do here at King's."

24 Hours in A&E shines a light on the life-saving care we provide for our patients. We need your to help us improve the life-saving care we provide for our patients. As a Major Trauma Centre for London, we have plans to improve our critical care facilities – which care for the most seriously unwell patients – and also to build a helipad on the King’s site. More than 300 patients every year are brought to King’s by air ambulance after being involved in road traffic accidents, falls and assaults, and this number is set to grow.
