Sam Peat

I am interested in current affairs and social issues. After University I hope to work on assignment based projects for editorial magazines and newspapers, and long term documentary photography projects.

Nothing Like It

This project is about the challenges facing the NHS and how these manifest themselves in A&E departments. The project is currently being shot in the Royal Gwent Hospital, Newport. On average, this A&E department sees a new patient every six minutes and thirty seconds, every single day of the year. Like most A&Es that have to cope with additional stresses from the reduction of services elsewhere in the NHS, the department is under constant pressure to perform despite the limited numbers of staff and resources that they have.
