Casualty 24/7: Season 9 Episode 2 (Channel 5, May 22, 2024)

Channel 5 Medical Documentary

The Barnsley Casualty team faces a busy Bank Holiday weekend in a new episode of Casualty 24/7, airing on Channel 5 on Wednesday 22 May. The episode follows the team as they brace themselves for a chaotic day, with Sister Jane and Consultant James Griffiths in charge of the shift.

The episode begins with the first emergency: 52-year-old Maggie, who is rushed to the hospital after a serious car crash. Doctor Griffiths, who lives nearby, started treating Maggie before his shift even began. She has osteoporosis, a bone disease, and is suspected to have badly broken her leg.

Meanwhile, in Minors, Emergency Nurse Practitioner Clare, the latest addition to the Barnsley Casualty team, tends to 70-year-old Stephen, who suffered a deep head wound after falling while walking his neighbor’s dog. Clare must carefully remove all the grit embedded in his skin to prevent infection.

Back in the Hub, Sister Jane struggles to coordinate the crowded department, while Doctor Griffiths wades through a sea of patients. One of his next patients is 26-year-old Jordan, who hurt his hand while riding a motocross bike. A potential broken bone could impact his livelihood.

In paediatrics, Advanced Nurse Practitioner Liam tends to nine-year-old Harrison, who has severe sunburn from a day at the beach, with his father, Nathan, by his side.

The team must navigate through the challenges of a busy Bank Holiday, made even more chaotic by a key football match. The Barnsley team expects patient numbers to rise significantly after the game, adding further pressure to the already hectic shift.
