Episode 15

Duration: 45 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC One HDLatest broadcast: on BBC Two HD

At the Great North Children's Hospital in Newcastle, 13-year-old Harvey has been shown to bed 27. He was playing badminton at school and, after landing at a funny angle on his right leg, he felt his knee lock and hasn't been able to bend his leg again. He also happens to be double-jointed and extremely flexible, which may be part of the problem.

Over at the Day Surgery Unit in Birmingham's Queen Elizabeth Hospital Susan has arrived to have some surgery carried out on her hand. Whilst on holiday she fell and broke her wrist, so now she needs to have an operation that will implant a metal plate in her wrist. She has had to rely a lot on husband Brian since she fell and is desperate to regain her independence. Show less
