The BBC, a television company, has approached the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy to seek help in finding physios who have appropriate stories to share in the new series of Bizarre ER. These would initially be for research but they may be asked to appear on the programme.
The aim of the BBC programme is to show how medical science, healthcare professionals and patients themselves are able to rise to the challenge of coping and adapting to situations that are truly testing.
Maverick Television are particularly interested in stories of unusual wounds, fractures, other injuries and symptoms, a bizarre accident in terms of its impact on the body or the accident itself or something that calls for a form of curious treatment or operation, or a fairly commonplace injury that was sustained in improbable or amusing circumstances. In any of the examples patients should have made a substantial recovery.
Interested parties who would like to contribute examples may contact the CSP press office.
