Nursing staff and students at the hospital

A new TV series lifts the lid on life as a nurse working in one of the country’s busiest emergency departments.

Emergency Nurses: A&E Stories follows nurses, healthcare assistants, newly qualified nurses and nursing students in the emergency department (ED) of Northwick Park Hospital in London.

Camera crews bear witness to staff dealing with emergencies

The ten-episode series sees staff dealing with emergencies including cardiac arrests, asthma attacks, suspected meningitis and caring for a motorcyclist after a crash.

The series also captures nursing student Jazmin’s clinical placement in the ED.

Camera crews spent several months filming in the department and it is the first time London North West University Healthcare Trust has featured in a TV series.

Important for public to see pressures front-line workers face

Trust chief executive Pippa Nightingale said: ‘We often see senior NHS figures appearing on TV and it’s quite right to highlight the work of our younger colleagues.

‘They have made an extraordinary contribution during the past two years and it’s important for the public to see the pressures they face every day.

‘The NHS is in safe hands with people like them, and I’m proud that their work is being shared with a wider audience.’

The next episode airs on ITV2 on Sunday 2 July at 8pm.
