Weekends are the busiest times at the Groote Schuur Trauma Centre in Cape Town. In the early hours of the morning doctors, nurses and support staff are on their feet for hours at a time during their 12-hour shifts and have very little time to see to one case before patients on stretchers are lined up at the door. Daily Maverick spent the weekend with the healthcare professionals who save lives and provide a photo essay of their experiences.
