Dancer Cara is brought in with a lypoma on her thigh and needs an operation. Dean is unhappy when he makes a mistake during the surgery procedure and Diane tells him to be realistic about his potential. Later, when Cara suffers stomach pains, Dean tries to prove himself by making a diagnosis and ordering treatment. Diane finds out and is furious. However, when Cara’s condition worsens and Diane operates she discovers Dean’s diagnosis was correct. Diane suggests that Dean will make a good doctor, rather than a surgeon.

Travellers, Moylan and his son Gavin are brought in after Moylan attacks their Social Worker, Imogen who is trying to bring a care order against him. As Lola treats Moylan for an injured arm, she is concerned with his disorientation and mood swings. A scan reveals he also has a stomach tumour. Whilst his father is being treated, Gavin is concerned he may have an STD and sees Mickie at the clinic. Tests reveals he has syphilis. Mickie is concerned by his secrecy and in her panic gives him an injection without going through Lola, as Moylan is rushing them to leave. Gavin later collapses due to being allergic to penicillin.
