Helicopter Heroes: voyeurism or encouraging safety awareness?


Next week: we’re watching Helicopter Heroes, BBC Two, daily at 3pm. What do you think?

Ever wanted to know what happens before your patients make it to the A&E department?

Rav Wilding lifts the lid on the paramedics who tend to patients at roadsides, rivers and ravines.

Do you think it’s voyeurism or makes some viewers more safety conscious and appreciative of healthcare professionals’ work?

Let us know what you think and your comments could be published in the magazine.

  • I think it's important for viewers to see how a little bit of carelessness can have long-term consequences, and the importance of healthcare workers to save lives. Definitely wins us more respect. And that Rav Wilding is lovely!

  • just been listening to a radio report on BBC world service on the helico. rescue service in Switzerland. They had one call from a district hospital where an elderly man had arrested during an operation on his oesophagus or trachea. The team do not usually go into theatres but they had to collect this patient with all the necessary equipment for his surveillance and life support to transport with him to a university hospital where the surgeons had prepared for him to undergo emergency cardiac catheterisation.

    I would be surprised if an elderly patient would be offered this life saving intervention in the UK.
