Filming for the new series of ‘A&E After Dark’ followed doctors, nurses and other colleagues working night shifts throughout September and October 2023. The series provides an insight into the types of illnesses and injuries staff see on a regular basis, and celebrates the amazing work they do on the frontline.

The docu-series, produced by Crackit Productions, will air at 9pm on Thursday 4 January 2024 on 5Star, and follows staff at Rotherham as well as some other hospitals. Episodes will air at 9pm each Thursday and will be available to stream from the My5 app.

Dr Richard Jenkins, Chief Executive of The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust, said: “You never know who is going to need care in our Urgent and Emergency Care Centre, and our hardworking colleagues really have seen it all. 

"A&E After Dark showcases the amazing team we have in Rotherham, not just in the UECC, but across the Trust, with input from colleagues in radiology, maxillofacial, orthopaedics and intensive care.

“A lot of what happens in an emergency department takes place out of sight of the waiting room. This series pulls back the curtains to show the care and devotion of our colleagues, and the impact they have on our patients of all ages.”
