S01E45

As Kieran (Mark Wells) and Ormerod (Andrew Scarborough) make their way to A&E, Ormerod yawns and admits he had a late night. Kieran says that he hasn’t slept much either; Adam’s (Ben Hull) staying with him and they spend all night talking about what has gone wrong with Heather (Caroline Carver). Moving away from personal matters, the pair look over the notes of their patient, Joyce Foster (Kitty Scopes), who was dropped off by her daughter. Eighty-four-year-old Joyce has been feeling generally unwell. Ormerod can’t understand why Joyce’s blood pressure is so slow, and he admits her for more tests.

Elsewhere, Jenny (Leah Bracknell) arrives at theatre to observe what can be done in terms of making the department run more efficiently. When she goes to change into her scrubs, she walks in on Woods (Paul Nicholas) in a state of undress, and he swiftly informs her that when he is changing no one else is. Jenny turns to Isla (Libby Davison) who apologises for Woods’ behaviour. Jenny is quick to see that the day may not be a bed of roses and is surprised when Pamela (Fiona Dolman) and Isla inform her that Woods may actually have a soft spot for her. After what they witnessed at Carrie’s (Lucie Trickett) party, is there truth behind their words?

Meanwhile, Carrie is upset that she hasn’t heard anything from Vijay (Pal Aron). Gemma (Sophia Di Martino) is confused as she didn’t realise that Carrie had genuine feelings for Vijay. Can Gemma offer a shoulder to cry on and give Carrie the support she needs?

Over on the ward, Heather (Caroline Carver) has to ask Norman’s (Steve Huison) girlfriend Maisy (Vicki Gates) to keep the noise down. Pearl (Lisa Davina Phillip) informs Heather that Maisy has had her dose of methadone so will be on top of the world for some time. Much to Heather’s annoyance she has to keep quiet about what she knows about Maisy and can’t tell Norman. Pearl tells her to stay away from Maisy and deal with her own problems before getting involved with other people’s relationships.

Later, Norman catches up with Heather, showing some concern for her about the break up. However, he quickly moves onto talking about Maisy and their plans. As Norman talks about moving Maisy into his house, Heather has to bite her tongue. Can Heather keep quiet or will she speak out in order to protect Norman?

Back on the ward, Joyce’s daughter Helen (Ava Hunt) arrives with her father George (Des Cummings), who is also feeling unwell. As Ormerod shows Helen to Joyce’s bed, George takes a turn for the worse. Ormerod identifies that George has high blood pressure and asks Helen what medication he is taking. Helen admits she doesn’t know and heads home to pick up the tablets. However, suddenly it is George that is needed to be rushed to surgery rather than Joyce. Can Helen get back before it’s too late?
