Casualty NHS 75th Anniversary Special Episode

CASUALTY will air a special standalone episode highlighting the extraordinary teamwork and collaboration that goes on across the medical services every day to save lives.

In a break from its traditional format and for the first time in CASUALTY’s history, the episode will feature commentary from real-life medical professionals.

The episode focuses on the story of Amartya, a motorbike rider who has been involved in a devastating collision with life threatening injuries, and showcases the extraordinary efforts made across the length and breadth of the emergency medical services to save him; from ambulance call handlers, to nurses, paramedics, doctors, HEMS teams, surgeons, and beyond.

Alongside action from CASUALTY’s well-known characters in the ED, viewers will see commentary from real-life medical professionals talking about the teamwork, collaboration and investment that is involved every single day to care for each individual patient.

Jon Sen, Executive Producer of CASUALTY says: “To mark the 75th anniversary we wanted to shine a light on the awe-inspiring work of the doctors, nurses and paramedics who work in the NHS. The episode tells a powerful story that dramatises the skill and immense team-work that goes into helping one patient, Amartya, as he fights for his life. We were thrilled when real medical professionals agreed to be interviewed to offer an insight into the highs and lows of dealing with these cases on a daily basis. In this one-off episode the audience gains a truly authentic glimpse behind the curtain to understand what it feels like to stand in the shoes of NHS professionals.”

The special standalone episode will air on Saturday 15th July on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
