It’s 31 December and the gang are ringing in the New Year. All except Jordan, who is preparing for a meeting with Henry in order to further his aspirations to become the best senior surgeon that Holby City Hospital has ever had.

Ruth’s New Year also begins terribly when she loses a patient at the stroke of midnight. Jay comforts her and when Mads decides her New Year’s resolution is to be friends with all the staff, he pushes her towards Ruth. At first, things go really well and they bond while treating a patient. But the new friendship doesn’t last long when Ruth wrongly accuses Mads of making a major mistake – much to Jay’s annoyance. Is this the last time he’ll make allowances for his former girlfriend?

Realising her mistake, Verity warns Ruth against alienating her friends.
