I am having a quiet night in front of the fire tonight with two cats.. Just watching Casualty on BBC1 featuring a patient with APS, MaryF x

probably can only be viewed in UK (sorry if you are not)

You beat me :-) just came on site to mention casualty! It's a start to raise awareness! Been waiting for either holly or casualty to cover a story xx

Yes... just shows that a night off doing nothing can still get a result...! MaryF x

I saw it too there wasnt an awful lot of info but a mention is a mention though i have to say none of my five pe's came on like that

As Oscar Wilde famously said 'The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about'.... so better than no mention. MaryF x

Hope you feel better, glad to see you back on here again and part of things, MaryF x

Will have to watch this

Yes although for us lot probably a bus man's holiday watching casualty, glad I did on this occasion. MaryF x

Wasnt a great coverage i have to say, there was a pregnant woman and i think they could have done a lot more with the story, but great we got a mention!!

Yes progress in the right direction. MaryF x

Just watched on catch up, as all comments above, not a big story, but a mention all the same!

On iplayer its 28.22. Nice to hear it even mentioned! Thought i would put the time it appears as if anyone is like me, im not a fan of casualty etc as im in and out of enough hospitals to then sit and watch a programme about one ;-) thanks mary for flagging it! :-)


Who knows! I know USA sometimes buys BBC programmes for some of it's channels. MaryF x


Yes, this is thanks to Holly Matthews: who has been in touch with the charity last year and is now an ambassador for the HSF.

Great APS storyline (much better than the one eight years ago) and a sterling performance by Holly who played the character 'Gina'.

hi just watched this now, as because of storms got very little internet connection!! May be that they'll do a follow up about her daughter in the storyline who is pregnant, as the other daughter stated shed been tested and the condition didn't affect her. That could highlight the sporadic nature of APS, who knows?

thanks Mary for posting that as I don't usually like to watch hospital stuff on TV, see too much of them in reality, but thanks again

Take care
