Jane Rackham

Jimmi is caught between medical ethics and legal boundaries when he treats a patient, Paul, who has hurt his hand after smashing up his uncle’s office. Paul reveals that his mother has recently died and believes her death was the fault of his uncle Joseph. After a spot of investigating, Jimmi is incensed to discover that Joseph runs a “medical” practice dealing in blood testing. He promises patients he can cure them by testing their blood and prescribing vitamins, as long as they don’t tell their GPs.

Meanwhile, at the start of the day, Mandy thinks things are looking up for her. However, as dusk falls, her positive mood has evaporated.
