Review

Cast your mind back to last summer when Nick Jordan’s partner Yvonne was seriously injured during the riots and had to be airlifted to another hospital. Her condition is now life-threatening, but Nick won’t give up on her and is trying every conceivable treatment. He just won’t let her go.

But while trying to treat a young, very ill woman who has announced she wants to die, he realises what he’s been doing. “It’s the kind of desperation that makes you just want to buy just a bit more time,” he explains tearfully.
As well as these very convenient parallel cases, the paramedics bring in an oddly behaved boy who’s been beaten up.

Summary

Jordan is determined to keep Yvonne on life support, and even as her condition deteriorates he clings on to hope. But when he meets a woman in the ED and sees her father's desperation as she refuses treatment, he is struck by the similarities to his own situation. Will he realise his battle to save his girlfriend is futile? Jeff and Dixie bring in a young man who has been set upon by bullies - and while Sam and Fletch worry about his symptoms, the patient steals supplies and then disappears. Medical drama, starring Michael French, Charlotte Salt and Alex Walkinshaw.
