BBC Documentary[edit]

The A&E department was the subject of the BBC documentary programme Panorama. The programme shows the pressures placed on emergency departments by waiting time targets. Staff and patients were followed over a week of filming in January 2014.[1] Coordinates: 54°34′58″N 1°20′54″W / 54.5829°N 1.3482°W / 54.5829; -1.3482
