Production of 24 Hours in A&E will move away from St George's Hospital, Channel 4 has confirmed.

After seven years at St George’s, the show will be moving to a new home in Nottingham.

It comes as the series celebrates its 10 year anniversary this year with more than 250 episodes broadcast across 24 series to date, 200+ of which are from St George’s.

Over the years, staff and patients at St George's has touched thousands of viewers with a mixture of heartbreak and scenes of joy.

St George’s will remain the home of 24 Hours in A&E for the next year as episodes from the Trust’s final filming period in 2020 will continue to be broadcast on Channel 4.

Some episodes from last year’s filming have already been broadcast showcasing the extraordinary work of hospital teams throughout the pandemic.

Dr Phil Moss, Consultant in Emergency Medicine at St George’s, said: “24 Hours in A&E has been an incredible experience for St George’s.

"It has been a privilege to have hosted such a hugely popular documentary series since 2014 which gives the public an inside view into the everyday life of working in a busy south London emergency department.

"Its success wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work and support of our brilliant team at St George’s who go above and beyond in their roles every day.

"We have truly become known as being the home of 24 Hours in A&E and while we will be sad to see it go, we are so proud of what it has achieved in its seven year period at St George’s and we wish it continued success in Nottingham.”

Rita Daniels, Commissioning Editor, Documentaries at Channel 4 added: "It’s been a real delight to be the commissioner for this incredible series for the last six years.

"I am thrilled that we will once again be able to celebrate and wonder at the amazing work of the NHS in a different part of the country and watch and appreciate the incredible care for its patients within this life-saving department.”

John Hay, Joint Chief Executive of The Garden who produce the series, said: “St George’s has been a wonderful home to A&E – we will always be grateful to them for allowing us in to see their extraordinary work, and we’re very pleased to be continuing them relationship with them through the new Emergency series.

"But we’re also excited about working with a new hospital, and delighted Nottingham has chosen us – it’s another very special place.

"We’ve been careful to move the series in stages over recent years – we’ve wanted to ensure it has a positive impact on the production ecosystem in the Midlands and the North, helping to grow and develop talent as we go.

"This next step will offer even more of a chance for a new generation of filmmakers to experience and evolve this much-loved programme.”

Spencer Kelly, Head of Factual at the Garden who has executive produced the series throughout its time at St George’s, said: “As we look forward to the baton for this much-loved documentary series being handed over to Queens Medical Centre, I would like to say a huge thanks to the staff and patients of St George’s for seven wonderful years and sharing with us such an intimate and important portrayal of emergency health care – reminding us that all too often the best medicine is compassion, love and understanding.”
