Air Medics - Frontline Doctors
Get ready to be propelled into the skies for the ride of your life in this brand new, high octane, helicopter emergency ambulance series set in the stunning landscape of the North of England.
The Great North Air Ambulance's three helicopters carry specialist trauma doctors and paramedics to some of the most remote parts of Britain's landscape reaching seriously injured patients in minutes. Air Medics follows every gritty moment with camera directors on scene and multiple mini-cams on board, combined with air to air filming recorded in High Definition. As a result, this series is a mixture of mind-blowing cinematic landscapes with heart-warming stories of survival, and extraordinary feats performed by ordinary, local heroes.
In this installment, the Doctors of the Great North Air Ambulance are tested to the limit. On the east side of the country, newcomer Doctor Matt Cheeseman is thrown into the deep end - he has to perform an advanced medical procedure at two serious accidents, not once, but TWICE in the same day.
First he has to deal with a head-on crash, which has left a car driver unconscious and seriously hurt. Matt has to anaesthetise the driver in order to fly him to A&E, but he's never done this complex procedure out of hospital before. Later in the day, Matt has to do it all over again with a farmer who's been trampled by a herd of bulls. But when one of the bulls escapes, the whole operation comes under threat.
Meanwhile in Cumbria, Dr Suzie Pritchard tries to assist a seriously hurt motorbike, but in doing so injures herself so badly it threatens her career as a flying doctor.
