24 Hours in A&E Series 1 Episode 18 – Sweet Child O’ Mine

We follow the stories of three mothers and the love they have for their families in the latest episode of 24 Hours in A&E.

The next episode airs on Monday 17 June at 9pm on Channel 4. The award-winning documentary returns from its home at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust’s (NUH) Queen’s Medical Centre (QMC) - one of the busiest A&E departments in the country. A place where stories of life, love and loss unfold every single day. 

Two-year-old Max is rushed into resus struggling to breathe. As doctors work to stabilise Max’s breathing, we hear how mum Debbie was diagnosed with cervical cancer aged 19. 

69-year-old Maureen has fallen down the stairs and broken her ankle while looking after her grandchildren. While doctors assess if she’ll need an operation to fix the fracture, we hear from her daughter Emily who tells us how Maureen lost her eldest son when he fell from scaffolding working as a brick layer.

Josh is in A&E with potential injuries to his pelvis having been thrown off his motorbike at speed. His mother Debbie tells us how when he was a toddler he overcame the challenges he faced being smaller than other children.

During September and October 2021, NUH welcomed cameras into the Emergency Department (ED) at QMC for the first series to be filmed outside of London.

A total of 24 programmes were recorded and the first 17 episodes have already been broadcast, giving viewers a look inside one of the country’s busiest accident and emergency departments.

24 Hours in A&E, which is made by The Garden, part of ITV Studios, has become one of the most popular documentary series on Channel 4, having aired more than 300 episodes.

Cameras returned to QMC in May 2023 to film another series of the award-winning documentary.
