Channel 5's 'Trauma Doctors: Every Second Counts' returns for a third series on Thursday 10th March at 9pm, featuring London’s Air Ambulance and The Royal London Hospital and Barts Heart Centre, Barts Health NHS Trust. 

The six one-hour weekly episodes will provide an insight into the thought processes and decision making that takes place when our advanced trauma doctors and paramedics are treating critically injured or complex patients. Viewers will be 'inside the heads' of the team as they make critical, split second decisions. 

Filming for the series took place with emergency care teams from the charity, Barts Health NHS Trust and the London Ambulance Service in April and May 2015, during helicopter shifts by day and rapid response cars by night. Filming also took place with our Physician Response Unit, which includes a senior doctor and paramedic team that responds to medical emergencies including patients in cardiac arrest. 

This is the third series of Trauma Doctors. The last series aired in 2014 and attracted audiences of over one million people per episode.
