Episode Summary

Ellen tries to speak with Harry alone but a phone call interrupts them. The caller is a young boy, Robbie, whose mother, Carol, has gone into labour after a car crash. Harry and Ellen work together to help Robbie deliver the baby over the phone but tragedy strikes when he is run over by the police car that is out looking for them. Luke brings them into Casualty where Harry and Ellen work on the injured boy. After Robbie is sent to surgery, Nathan and Harry spar over the hospital and the way Harry conducts his affairs. Finally Ellen gets to speak to Harry alone and tells him she is pregnant. She is crushed when he asks her to prove it. Ellen ends up slapping Harry and he tells her to leave.

Maggie treats a junkie, Laura, with stomach pains, after she is hit whilst breaking into someone’s house. They discover she has hepatitis b and dies of liver failure in resus. Maggie is frustrated that her death could have been avoided, if she was given treatment earlier in her diagnosis.

Meanwhile, Bruno gives Kelsey some Botox, which makes her eye swell up. Charlie confronts them and Kelsey lies that she went out in her break to get it done.
