An Hour To Save Your Life

Staff from West Midlands Ambulance service have appeared in the third of a three-part television educational documentary series about the care of some of the most seriously ill and injured patients they deal with.

‘An Hour To Save Your Life’, the third and final part of which was broadcast last night on BBC2, explored in forensic detail the dilemmas and innovations at the frontline of emergency medicine. Following the lead clinicians as they respond to the most critical of cases, the series offered a unique insight into the minute-by-minute decisions that are made in the fight for life.
