Get ready to be totally immersed in the extraordinary lives of some of Britain’s bravest medics – and their patients. This brand new series has a whole new look and is packed full of dramatic and heart-warming stories.
Shot by programme makers who are trained helicopter crew working alongside paramedics and doctors every day, this is real life-or-death emergency medicine with total access.
In the UK’s biggest county, famous for its rugged dales and moors, rocky coast and gritty cities we’re flying on two helicopters racing to the rescue at 150mph carrying state of the art medical equipment and highly qualified medics. There’s stunning air to air footage, bodycams giving a doctor’s eye view of treatment as it is delivered and heart-warming interviews with patients who owe their lives to Britain’s medical helicopter heroes.
We’ll put Really viewers in the NHS’s frontline, alongside paramedics and doctors doing their high stakes jobs at the roadside, in the factory or farmyard. We’ll hear patient stories as they live through one of the worst days of their lives, share frank accounts from medics as they work and follow ordinary people who are seriously injured or critically ill regaining their health.
Helicopter ER Series 5 starts at 9pm on Monday 4th May on the Really channel (Freeview 17, Sky 142, Virgin Media 128)
