Black Alert

Series 30 - Episode 19 Black Alert



Holby City Hospital is bursting at the seams after a nearby hospital declares an emergency, so Connie’s finely honed management skills come to the fore as she snaps, sulks and stomps.

Bizarrely it’s down to dear Lofty to come to the rescue with calm common sense, which does him no harm at all as he’s in the throes of applying for promotion.

Meanwhile the perpetually frowning Ethan has a terrible day, trying to help a depressed man then easing a dear old lady’s final hours. All the ED needs is a Casualty road accident, which it gets when a young couple head off on a trip with the words “Travel safe!” ringing in their ears. Uh-oh.


Flossy, an ailing elderly woman who was previously a heart transplant patient, arrives at the ED complaining of pains in her stomach. With her is Mo, whose late son was the donor whose heart Flossy received. At the age of 80, Flossy believes she has lived a good, long life, and is ready to die, but Ethan faces an impossible dilemma as high demand leaves him without a bed in which to make Flossy's passing more comfortable. Young couple Lee and Sarah face a deadly setback in their plans to go travelling when they're involved in a car crash, while a trip to the emergency department offers Lee some much-needed perspective on his relationship. An angry patient clashes with Louise when he claims he is being `refused treatment' for what could very well be a simple case of the common cold. Medical drama, starring George Rainsford and Azuka Oforka.
