Doctors: Sid isn’t impressed

This week in Letherbridge.

Monday: The Sutton Vale team get an unexpected visit from the new Director of Primary Care at the CCG, Deep Chandra (45-60) who wants to assess their procedures. Chandra is keen not to get in the way but Jimmi calls for back-up. Bear persuades Al to go over.

Meanwhile, Jimmi juggles patients while Scarlett deals with patient Denise, unapologetically late but insisting on seeing Jimmi. Then Scarlett takes a call from a patient who thinks their pet tarantula might have escaped in the surgery that morning. Scarlett is terrified. At the Mill, Al tells Bear he will track down the Gabber poster and Valerie is on a mission to take everyone’s photos, without them noticing. Overhearing their chat, she discovers that she’s been called ‘cheugy’ and once Al tells her what it means is insulted. Zara updates Emma on the Sid and Princess gossip and asks her to take over as Trainer – she needs someone who can handle Princess.

At The Campus Surgery, Princess sweetly tells Karen that she doesn’t think she’s a Karen with about as much sincerity as a sausage, leaving Karen to retort that she doesn’t think she’s royalty. They are interrupted by Valerie who swiftly takes their photos, ignoring Princesses insistence that she wants editorial control over all images of her.

Tuesday: Sid isn’t impressed to see Bear treating Princess like normal while he’s being off with him, so when Bear announces that he’s moving out, Sid calls him on it. At Sutton Vale, Jimmi laughs when he hears that Emma is replacing Sid as Princesses Trainer. Emma notices that Maeve seems down and brings her tea. Later on Maeve invites Emma trampolining. Emma’s bad hip means she has to decline.

At the Campus Surgery, patient Michael wants help with his hearing, but Daniel is more concerned with how unkempt he is. Michael admits that his Carer walked out three weeks ago. Daniel calls the Care Company and learns that Michael assaulted the Carer with a record and the company are now refusing to work with him.

Wednesday: Daniel and Zara inform Princess that Emma is taking over her training and she should report to the Campus today. Before she leaves, Princess pumps Valerie for information about Emma and learning that she’s bisexual goes on a full charm offensive in their first meeting. Valerie and Daniel are excited when a large parcel arrives, others are less impressed by the contents.
