24 hours in A&E reaches record high

24 hours teamEpisode 10 of ‘24 hours in A&E’, broadcast on Wednesday 18 July, received the highest viewing figures since the series began. 3.3 million people tuned in to watch last week’s episode, beating off competition from BBC1, BBC2, ITV and Channel 5.

In this episode, viewers are introduced to new Staff Nurse Sophie, who moved to King’s College Hospital from Lancashire and has only been in post for three weeks. During that time she has seen cases of stabbings, gunshot wounds, and cyclists colliding with buses – a change of pace compared to the farming accidents she used to see.

Also featured in the episode was a young man bleeding heavily who needed deep tissue stitches after a mishap with a paring knife at work, and a dad of two who had fallen over against a car and had damage to his head, neck and spine.
