BASINGSTOKE hospital will feature on TV tonight in a national TV programme which features strange cases from A&E, including a man who fired a nail gun into his leg.

The hospital opened its doors to Bizarre ER, a television show that showcases some of most unusual casualties arriving at A&E, and will feature in a new 10-part series beginning tonight on E4.

Basingstoke hospital is one of four hospitals across the UK featured in the series, which follows patients as they receive treatment in the Emergency Department and elsewhere in the hospital.

Clare Knock, clinical matron in the Emergency Department at Basingstoke hospital, said: “We are all very proud to work here and enjoyed the chance to showcase our skills when the film crew were on site. We will all be watching the programme when it goes on air.

“It should give people a real understanding of the work that goes on in an Emergency Department and how we have the expertise to deal with a really wide range of injuries.”

Patients who were waiting to be treated were asked if they wanted to be a part of the film, and among the patients treated at the hospital that feature in the programme include: a woman who got a keyring hooked onto her hand and a man who got his fingers caught in a lawnmower.
