Storyline

Staff encourage put-upon wife Lesley Pinner to take a stand against her controlling husband who was more concerned about the bike than her when they fell off their tandem. Jill's alcoholic patient Jimmy Beattie is brought sharply face to face with his responsibilities to his children when his selfless wife dies of cancer and Matron assumes Adam is the father when Catherine tells her she is pregnant. Joan takes a job in Cameroon and, as Nkeshi's future in England is doubtful, agrees to take her too. Jeff decides he will soon follow. Written by don @ minifie-1
