Night Shift

Aug 14, 2013 on Channel 4 at 9:00 PM


On a busy Saturday night the A&E staff have to juggle the needs of elderly patients and sick children with patients who are drunk or violent. Dr Fleur, who's six months pregnant, is the lead trauma consultant working with senior sister Jen during ... (more)a hectic night shift in Resus. The department's full and some patients can be challenging. Twelve-year-old Grace has fallen down a flight of stairs and has potentially serious spine and neck injuries. She's brought into Resus by paramedics with her mum Michelle and needs to have a CT scan to assess the extent of the damage. Parents Sarah and Andy have brought in their 10-month-old son Dexter, who's been vomiting, has a high temperature and is unresponsive. Later, 88-year-old Irene is brought in by ambulance after suffering with chest pains through the night. As she reflects about growing up in London during the war, her son Stuart faces up to the fact that his own role in the family is changing. Meanwhile, clinical site manager Gordon has worked at Kings' for 14 years. He's in charge of the day-to-day running of hospital resources, including the hospital beds. When senior sister Jen notices that he has a bloodshot eye she suggests he gets his blood pressure checked. Further tests reveal news that changes Gordon's life.
