Life's Little Hiccups

Aug 15, 2012 on Channel 4 at 9:00 PM


The final episode of the series focuses on men with very different problems who are all being treated at the King's Emergency Department on a busy night shift. Stacey, a 37-year-old dad of six, and grandfather, has come to King's with his girlfrie... (more)nd Tara. He's suffering from breathing difficulties. He had a collapsed lung eight years ago and is afraid the symptoms have returned. Stacey demands a bed and a sandwich as well as immediate attention from senior staff nurse Laura, who's in charge of the busy Minors section. But it becomes clear that his attitude masks vulnerability about being in hospital. Twenty-six-year-old Andrew trains at the gym every day with a group of friends who call themselves 'The Spartans', but he arrives at King's with back pain after being knocked off his motorbike by a car. Sam has been rushed to resus after being kicked and punched in the head and body outside one of London's most exclusive nightclubs. The 20-year-old is weak and numb, but has another reason not to want to be at King's: his dad died at the hospital. As well as possible injuries to his neck and spine, Sam also has a broken nose, and he's worried that he may have lost his looks. And Henry has had hiccups for three days. He's got a vital electrician's exam in the morning and registrar Faheem is determined to diagnose his problem and get him well in time.
