24 Hours in A&E

24 hours in A&E

Channel 4’s award-winning documentary series 24 Hours in A&E is returning to the Queen’s Medical Centre to film a second series.

We first welcomed cameras into the Emergency Department (ED) at the QMC in 2021 for the first series filmed outside of London.

The series is filmed using remote cameras that are fixed to the walls. 


The production team would welcome the opportunity to speak to patients, and those accompanying them, about the filming. However, if attending our Emergency Department during these dates, you are under no obligation whatsoever to take part and your decision will have no impact on your treatment. Should you choose to be filmed, a member of the production team will contact you before the programme is broadcast. Please be assured that no identifiable personal details will be released or broadcast, without your prior consent.


We respect and understand that some patients and their families/friends will not wish to take part. Please be assured that the production team will not broadcast any identifiable footage unless you have given prior consent. If you’re incidentally caught in shot, you will be appropriately obscured.

Members of the production team will be scattered around the Emergency Department at all times. Feel free to ask them any questions or raise any concerns you might have.

If you have any other questions about filming you can also contact the Trust's Communications Team nuh.communications@nuh.nhs.uk / 0115 924 9924.
