Through the eyes of an extraordinary and dedicated team of medical heroes, with a steady stream of desperate patients coming through the door, Emergency lifts the curtain on one of the busiest hospital emergency departments in Australia.
Seeing everything from life-threatening conditions like strokes and heart attacks, through to car-accident victims, severe falls and vicious assaults, our world-class doctors, nurses and specialists are on stand-by 24/7. From the moment they arrive at the hospital, through triage and treatment, each step of a patient’s medical journey is captured.
Emergency is filmed on an extensive fixed-rig camera set-up, and complemented with small hand-held cameras, specifically designed not to intrude on the daily functions of the hospital. This dynamic combination of filming allows for extraordinary access to cases, delivering captivating, raw and unproduced moments.
