The Royal Melbourne Hospital’s frontline heroes will feature in Nine’s gripping new medical series Emergency, premiering Wednesday, July 8, at 8.30pm

The factual series, filmed before the COVID-19 pandemic crippled hospitals around the world, lifts the curtain on The RMH’s emergency department – one of the busiest in Australia.

Emergency will reveal the tribulations and triumphs of The RMH’s dedicated doctors and nurses as they deal with victims of assaults, car crashes and other tragedies, caring for the constant stream of patients coming through the door every day.

This 10-part series offers incredible and unprecedented access behind the scenes, with roving and fixed cameras in trauma bays, examination rooms and triage. From the moment a patient is rushed into the hospital, each step of their dramatic journey is captured. As events unfold, personal interviews with doctors and nurses tell the gripping story of each compelling case.

From life-threatening conditions like strokes and heart attacks to victims of accidents, violence and major public emergencies, the series will reveal the bravery and extraordinary composure of The Royal Melbourne Hospital’s medical teams as they battle around the clock to save lives.

Associate Professor Mark Puland, The RMH’s Director of Emergency Medicine, said the series premiere is a welcome relief to himself and his staff members, who have had to adopt strict protocols and policies during COVID-19.

“I’ve really enjoyed watching the series back. It takes me back to a time we weren’t all in masks and worried about COVID.

“It looks so relaxing to me – it might not look like that to the viewers watching at home.”
