A coach crash involving 30 teenagers and their teachers means the four student nurses who arrive for the first day of work placement in the ED have to embark on the steepest learning curve imaginable. In one shift they learn about patient confidentiality, death, bereaved relatives and organ donation as well as mopping up bucketloads of blood and vomit, while trying not to put their foot in it.

Seeing the work of the ED through the eyes of the novices works incredibly well while the newcomers do a good job of portraying their characters’ naivety without smothering their personalities.


Student nurses Ally, Aoife, Jamie and Robyn arrive for their first day at the ED, but no sooner have they walked through the door than news comes in that 30 children and their teachers have been involved in a coach crash on the Holby ring road. There is just enough time to partner them with their mentors - Charlie, Linda, Fletch and Lloyd - before they are thrown in at the deep end, helping to treat the constant influx of accident victims. Can they remember their training and keep a level head?
