On Red Nose Day, patients and staff at King's reflect on the importance of being able to focus on the brighter side of life. Dilson, who's 33, is rushed in by ambulance with severe knife wounds after being repeatedly stabbed in the head and neck as he tried to stop a fight outside a nightclub. Dilson is agitated when he arrives and the staff have to calm him down before they can properly assess his injuries. It's vital he has a CT scan as it's incredibly difficult to judge how serious a stabbing is from a visual inspection. Doreen, who's 79, arrives at King's after falling at home and breaking her wrist. Doreen's daughter Helen arrives to be with her mother. As Doreen's wrist is treated, mother and daughter describe their strong bond and the pain they both experienced when Doreen and her husband had to have their young children taken into care when they couldn't cope. Helen tracked down Doreen when she was in her twenties and they're now inseparable. Meanwhile, two-year-old Cydney is brought into paediatric A&E by her concerned parents, Keeley and Michael. Cydney hasn't had a wee for two days. Consultant Firas thinks the toddler will be fine, but he wants her to have blood tests to make sure. As they wait for the results, Keeley and Michael reflect on the highs and lows of becoming parents at 13, and how they've decided to stop at four kids.
