David Crawford

Another day on the ward sees another probing of the divide between the beating heart of the NHS and its bureaucracy. Emotions are running high: Kim is trying to give up smoking while dealing with an ill mother-in-law; Pippa takes legal advice about her divorce from a cleaner; and Den seems to be short for “Denial” as the fun-loving sister struggles with the prospect of motherhood.

Everything is underplayed but the haywire Pippa can always raise a chuckle, while the jargon of “modern matron” Demaris – “pushing the envelope of care a little further” – are finely turned pieces of nonsense.
