A&E Live: Davina McCall goes behind-the-scenes at Leeds General Infirmary

  • Lisa Adlam reports on A&E Live

A groundbreaking programme going behind-the-scenes at Leeds General Infirmary (LGI) will be broadcast live from the hospital on ITV from tonight.

A&E Live will be hosted by Davina McCall - with the presenter spending time at LGI's trauma unit over three nights.

The series is part of the 70th anniversary of the NHS with the aim being to highlight what really goes on in a busy A&E department.

“We want to give the viewers an insight into what one of the busiest, most efficient, trauma centres in the UK is really like. But not just inside the A&E department - from the 999 phone call, from the ambulance, all the way through to A&E itself, to really celebrate the NHS and show the amazing work that they do.No one has ever done this before, there’ve been A&E and ambulance shows but they haven’t married the two together to show how the NHS really works and how they work together and the brilliant work they do.”
