Karen Hollins is not enjoying being the stand-in surgery practice manager while Mrs Tembe is out of action in hospital, following the car crash.

With Karen’s office now overflowing with boxes of medical stock she accidentally ordered twice, she’s losing her patience and makes a decision that may not please surgery partners Zara Carmichael and Daniel Granger…

Meanwhile, Ruhma Carter is accompanied by co-worker Ayesha Lee as she faces one of the most difficult days of her life.

But when the surgery midwife is approached by Gritisha Varme, a young mum who had her baby delivered by Ruhma, she is overcome with emotion when Gritisha tells everyone how wonderful Ruhma is. But inside, Ruhma is wondering how she’s ever going to carry on…

At The Mill, Zara receives a visit from an autistic man, Duffy Reynolds, carrying a suitcase and announcing he has left home to escape his domineering mum, Patricia, after she cut the plug off his laptop to stop him chatting with women online!

Doctors, Duffy Reynolds
