Tom has convinced girlfriend Sam and boss Zoe his panic attacks are behind him – but secretly he’s stealing diazepam from the hospital supplies!
This week, as the anxious paediatrician celebrates his thirtieth birthday, Sam notices his irritable mood. Meanwhile Nurse Manager Tess requests everyone keep a close record of their diazepam prescriptions, due to large amounts going missing…
When the stressed doctor oversteps the mark by breaching patient confidentiality, Zoe queries his unpredictable behaviour.
Tom realises his pill popping is getting out of hand and confessions all to Sam, who makes him promise he’ll kick his habit.
Elsewhere, Robyn suspects all is not as it seems with a vulnerable elderly couple. Meanwhile, Sam suspects Tom isn’t as okay with being adopted as he makes out.
